Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

It seems like these Wednesday's just come up way too fast. Time is just flying by so fast. I remember my grandma telling me that the older you get the faster time goes. I found that hard to believe, especially coming from someone who didn't do much all day. She hardly cooked, the family usually brought her food in and the family cleaned her place for her and did her laundry. She liked to watch her soap operas, especially (as she called it) "The Young and the Wrestlers!" LOL (I sure do miss her) And she would read the tabloids and take to heart all that they had to say in them. That was pretty much her days. And she said they went by so fast. My days are usually pretty busy and they go by very fast.

This is my card for the Wednesday SplitCoastStampers Sketch Challenge. I really liked the layout of this sketch. After I set the butterfly on my card in place (with Crystal Effects) I wished I would have moved it up a bit more into the corner of the larger top square. Oh well. I still think it needs something more but then again I haven't been completely happy with my creations lately. My next card will be a "totally happy" one!!! LOL

My card was made using Berry Bliss decorative paper, Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink card stock. I used a little pink grosgrain ribbon and a few buttons. The butterflies were made using the "Priceless" set. I stamped the image with Versa Mark on vellum and embossed it in white. I cut them out and set one on top of the other. And as I mentioned above I set the butterfly in place with Crystal Effects. I sponged the pink edges in Chocolate Chip and assembled the card. I may try another one using this sketch.

This card was made entirely with Stampin' Up! products.
