Sketch #48

Friday's don't seem to be working out so well for sketches lately... I'll keep trying, but may switch the day if I can't do it. Here's the latest sketch:

I did a layout and a card with this sketch. The card was inspired by Kristina Werner's Colour Inspiration #44 (Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Close to Cocoa) and is a card for a swap with Anne (sorry it's not sent yet!). I used the Big Shot to make the scalloped oval frame and the butterfly, and then used the Texturz Plate to add the embossed dots to the butterfly. I gently rubbed the inkpad over the embossing to highlight it. I used the Central Park stamp set for the clear embossed flower and the tone on tone background stamping.
I used the March MSS kit for my layout, and added some Prima flowers, some butterflies (fabric and felt) cut with my Big Shot, assorted brads and buttons and some stamped butterflies. This layout was also for Leigh's 'Pile it On' challenge at the MSS crop this weekend. Anyone who is familiar with my usual pages will know what a stretch all these embellishments are!

Anyway, I love this sketch and hope it inspires you! Please add a link if you create something!

oh I just LOVE that sketch, Liz! And that butterfly layout?! Fantastic. I have had a butterfly page in my head for a few weeks and you've inspired me to get moving on it!
