Freshly Made Sketches 296

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

This week our lovely challenge at Freshly Made Sketches is brought to you by Jen Timko.  The sketch is square but I used a little poetic license and created a rectangular card.

The colors for my card come from the latest challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.  As I was putting this card together I wondered how a red butterfly would look and I'm happy to say that I like it!  I layered the swiss cheese butterfly top over a vellum bottom and jazzed up the background with some sparkle medium speckles in a champagne color.  I finished off the corner with some Nuvo Crystal drops in place of a paper layer.

My Freshly Made Sketches teamies have put together some great cards to inspire you to join us this week.  I hope we'll see you in the gallery!

Poetic license is good! This is so the red butterfly! And about those drops.....why don't I have any?

So glad you went with the red butterfly, Jen. It really pops against the tag you've created, too. I did try the Nuvo drops, but was sooooo bad at it! Yours look just like enamel dots. Love that you've made this a rectangular card. Sweet!! Bev

The red butterfly looks perfect! And I had to smile at Linda's comment about the Nuvo drops - the enabling continues :)
