Nature Walk Sketch Challenge

 My favorite day of the week!  I LOVE it when Wednesday rolls around and the new sketch challenge at SplitCoastStampers is released!  

I didn't feel very creative today so my card is not a WOW card, it's just an average card and I'm ok with that.

I used the "Nature Walk" set.  I purchased it a while back and had never used it.  Well, not my set anyway.  At one of our DIVA days I had used the set in a shoe box swap.  I liked it then and I still like it and I was glad I finally got to use mine.  It's such a fun set and very versatile too.  I am hoping to make a notebook cover with it later this week.  Something more on the masculine side.  Hope it works out.  Though, if it doesn't you know I'll show it to you anyway!!!

I don't know if you can see it on the card but the butterfly is cut out and set in place using Dimensionals.  I wanted to give the card some depth.  

That large open space really requires a much bigger image than I used.  I could have cut the area down a bit to make the image fit better but then again you are messing up the challenge.  The challenge is to take the layout and make a card with it.  You can turn or flip the sketch but you shouldn't be changing the size of the layers.  SO this is what I ended up with.  And yes, another birthday card.  I was looking in my stash and I have tons of birthday cards.  I just love making them and it's nice just to go to the drawer and pick one out if I need one! 

I have another idea for this sketch and I'll work on it later in the week. I need to get a project done so I can show you!  And I want to show you the necklace I made for my daughter-in-law to be's bridesmaids.  It's such a pretty and rich looking necklace,

I'm off to work on my project!  If you have some time, play with this sketch, it is a fun one!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
