Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I was SO glad I had a little time to play with the Sketch Challenge today. I just LOVE this layout!!! It's got a lot of possibilities. There's a LOT of stamps around here that will fit in that little window. Today I chose the butterfly from the Stampin' Up! "God's Beauty" set. I just LOVE that butterfly!!!

I stamped it on glossy card stock using black StazOn. Then I colored it in using a Q-tip. I had colored the marker on the cover of my stamp set and picked up the color with the Q-tip. I started out with Pretty in Pink. I colored the whole butterfly in except for the little round dots at the edges of the wings. Then I took the Pretty in Pink marker and colored it in so it was a little darker. And finally I took the Regal Rose marker and colored it in at the darkest parts of the wings.

I kept this card simple. I figured it could be used for SO many occasions. Birthdays, Thinking of You, Sympathy, Mother's Day, Get well, etc.

I used the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder for the white background piece, the Pirouette Pink and Pretty in Pink piece. I layered them on black card stock and taped them all together. Before I taped the larger Pirouette Pink piece on I tied a bow and added it to the bottom of the piece. That area just needed a little something!! I thought about adding some words there but I wanted to keep the card simple enough and blank so I could use it for any occasion.

If you have time stop by at SplitCoastStampers and play with the sketch!!! You don't have to be a member there play along and submit your work!!!
