Sweet Sketch



Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made with the sketch on Karen Giron's Blog, The Sweetest Thing

I varied the sketch a bit, just me not paying close attention, the sketch actually shows a square card, mine is a standard A2 size. I used some fun new items. I just got this paper, Bella Bleu from SU. My butterflies are also a new die, I have had a couple of weeks but just opened up! The base of the card is not quite navy followed by some very vanilla and then the Ds paper. I cut a strip of very vanilla and stamped the sentiment, from Wonderful Favorites, with not quite navy ink. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line it all up. The mat is more not quite navy card stock and I used my curly label punch to make the edge design. Dawn has a tutorial here for doing the decorative edge with the curly label punch. It is so cool and super easy when you follow her instructions.

I used made the square that the big butterfly is mounted on with more NQN and Very Vanilla crdstock, pierced around the edge with my piercing tool and mat pack. I cut out the big butterfly with the die, one in the DS paper and one with the NQN cardstock. Layered them up and added some sticky rhinestones to the center and mounted it with a sliver of a dimensional. The other two butterflies are made with my MS punch and also have sticky rhinestones in the middle.

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
