BC93 - Butterfly Friendship

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.
