SSSC70.......For You





GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!!! My favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

Here is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:



Isn't this a fun sketch? I love the swirl element on it!! I did take a bit of creative license with this one.

The base of the card is baja breeze card stock, one of my all time fav colors! I followed that with chocolate chip card stock. The next layer is the first place I varied it a bit, I wanted to use the chocolate chip DS paper that is on one side but didn't have enough of it left, so I added the flowered side piece with a piece of card stock punched border in between them. My original intent was to have my butterflies on squares like the sketch, but they didn't really look the way I wanted so I added them to the card without the squares and I like the look much better. The butterflies are made with the Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings. They are in baja and chocolate chip and layered up with some pearls in the middle. The sentiment comes from the "Great Friend" stamp set and is stamped with timber brown stazon onto white card stock and punched out with the small oval punch. I added directly to the base and added a very small butterfly to the corner. The pretty swirl element is half pearls.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
