Hello and Happy Memorial Day to my US friends! It's the 5th Monday of the month which means we have a wild card sketch for you this week at The Challenge.
For my card today I used some of my favorite stamps and dies from Concord & 9th. To make the card base I stamped the flowers and berries from Wildflower on watercolor paper and colored with my Zig Clean Color watercolor pens. I used a 4" doily (folded in half), as my semi-circle element, and wrapped some gold cord around the card just above that. I cut the butterfly from Floral & Flutter Die from shiny gold card stock. I also cut a butterfly from Reverse Confetti's Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts from vellum to place underneath the gold butterfly. The word "beautiful", from the Beautiful You Dies, was also cut from shiny gold card stock. "Be your own kind of" is from the stamp set Beautiful Words; I stamped it on black card stock and embossed in white. I added 3 black sequins to finish my card.
I hope that you'll play along with this week's sketch. This will be the last challenge at The Challenge until September, we're taking a summer vacation :) Be sure to drop by Lesley's blog to see what the rest of the design team created!
