SplitCoast Sketch Challenge

This is the third Split Coast Sketch Challenge I've participated in. This one was a fairly simple sketch so I was able to fit it in tonight! I used the "Four Seasons" decorative papers, Apricot Appeal, Marigold Morning and Whisper White. I sponged the Marigold Morning, Whisper White and Decorative paper with Marigold Morning. I stamped the Perennial Favorites butterfly with More Mustard. It was the only color that blended well and stood out on the white. I added matching brads because I felt the corners needed something. I added the brads in the corners and looked at the card and felt it needed just a little something more. SO I added brads to the butterflies and thought I'd better stop before I clutter the card up. Ever do that? Just keep adding "stuff" because you think it needs a little something more and that leads to a little something more and all of a sudden your card looks cluttered and you want to start over. Or better yet, you put it in a place where no one can see it because it's too horrible to show anyone? Got one of those places???? Me either! LOL

This was a very quick card to make. The sketch gives the measurements which makes card making a whole lot easier, doesn't it? This card can be used for a variety of occasions.

Don't forget about the Blog Candy! Some of the comments are just a riot! I love to see you having fun with this. Some days you just wish things were really that simple! I'll be drawing a name on Friday so get your name in there!

Thank you SO much for stopping by!

Love what you did--I noticed the sketch for this week and have been debating about trying it--I hope to. You are right, they do give the measurements:)
