Sketch Frenzy Friday 051112

Happy Friday all! Man, don't these weeks fly by?? They sure are here!! Hopefully with school out next week, things will slow down at least a little!!

As you know Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini tour. Here is my card

based on this sketch by Maria Vanderform.

I had this set and colors out for something else I was working on, and decided they were perfect for this sketch. I'm wondering right now too, why don't I use this combo more often??

The card base is Island Indigo, the background is Pool Party DSP. I stamped the butterfly from Creative Elements 3 times in Island Indigo on Whisper White and cut them out. I split the DSP and put the stripe print at the bottom, and the other at the top. Across the center is an Island Indigo ribbon. The butterflies were attached with a dimensional (just a half in the center), and curled their wings over the paper piercer for dimension. I added a pearl to each body, and three at the top right per the sketch. The saying is also from Creative Elements.

Jennifer, let me apologize! I am so sorry for calling you someone else's name. I was so focused on Maria making the sketch, that in my comment, I referred to you as her.
I apologize!
