Sketch Frenzy Friday 112610

Happy Friday all! I'm off to work today for a while, hope those of you that went shopping early early found great deals! Here is my creation this week for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge:


It is based on the following sketch by Tammy Baldwin. We hope you'll play along with us this week! Take a break from the shopping & stamp a little!!

Mine came out sort of Vintage-I like it! I decided on the set, Simple Friendship, first, knowing I could use the butterfly where the diamond was. Then I picked up the Color Coach to look for a color combo. I knew I had "it" when I landed on this one: Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze & So Saffron.

Card base is Poppy Parade. The background layer of So Saffron was stamped with the flourish image in So Saffron. The panel on the left of Very Vanilla was stamped with the flowers in Baja Breeze & So Saffron and layered on Baja Breeze. A Poppy Parade ribbon is attached around the background layer. The saying is stamped in Poppy Parade on Very Vanilla with one small So Saffron flower for accent. The butterfly was stamped in Poppy on Very Vanilla and cut out. I folded him gently in the middle and curled the wings slightly. It doesn't show in the scan but he's almost "popping" off the card in real life! He's attached with dimensionals just in the center to add to that effect.

Really pretty! Those are great colors together, and I love how you used the butterfly in place of the square.

Waaaaaaaaaa--your card reminds me of all the lantana out back that just got nipped by the first freeze last night. No more beatiful butterflies til next spring 'round here, *sniff, sniff*

Seriously, Jennifer, this is lovely. . . .
