Flores Suaves Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I REALLY love this "Flores Suaves" set. I was looking though the Spanish version of the Stampin' Up! catalog and ran across this gem that was in their book but not in ours! I just LOVE this rose but it's the butterfly that really caught my eye! I thought it would be a fun set to have so I decided to order it and I'm glad I did.

This set fit well with this weeks Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. One of my favorite websites to spend LOTS of time at! There's SO many samples over there. When I get at a loss for what to make I find great inspiration there and sometimes when I just can't get motivated to create on my own I will always find cards that are exactly what I would do so I copy them. Yes, it is ok to copy other people's cards BUT you do need to give them credit and a link back if at all possible! It's only fair.

My card is actually very simple. The rose was colored in using a blender pen, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Pumpkin Pie markers. Same with the butterfly except I added some black to the wing edges.

I didn't care much for cutting out the antenna of the butterfly. I am not so good at that and I usually end up cutting off one or both of them! I didn't cut them off this time but I do think there is too much white showing around the edges. I suppose I could have colored it in with a marker but then it would be too wide or thick looking, so I left it as it was.
The "thank you" is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. Another one of those sets that is high on my favorites list. I think it has words to cover nearly every occasion!!
The decorative background paper is from the "Soft Subtles" pack. I WANT to get all of the color group packs. These papers are great to have on hand! They sure do make putting a card together a quick task!

It was a fun sketch and if you have time give it a try!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
