Friday has arrived and you all know what that means...Time for the Bloggers Challenge Group to post their cards/projects. This week our leader (Lisa) provided us with a great sketch to use for our inspiration. I just purchased the new (Great Friend) stamp set from the new Occasions Mini catalog. I just love the Butterfly image in this set and had to have it. I wanted to pair it with some brighter more spring like colors so I went with the Raspberry Tart DP for my color scheme. My card base is Rose Red layered with Cameo Coral and the Designer Paper. I added an embossed piece of Cameo Coral mounted to a scallop piece of Rose Red. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black ink before I ran it through the Cuttlebug. I cut out a circle of Kiwi Kiss and then a piece of the designer paper with a scalloped circle. I cut a smaller circle of Whisper White and sponged Cameo Coral ink on it and layered them. My butterfly was stamped on Whisper White cs with Rose Red ink and colored with a Certainly Celery marker. Then I cut it out and embossed it with the Versa Mark pad and Iridescent Ice EP. I added 3 small clear jewels to the body and made antennae out of a piece of the Pretties Flower kit that I colored with a Certainly Celery marker. I added some piercing to all my scallops and 3 Rhinestone brads that I cut the prongs off and glued on using glue dots.
This is a great sketch and I hope you give it a try. For further inspiration click on the Bloggers Challenge Icon on my sidebar and check out what the other members created using this sketch. Have a great weekend.
