Breezy Butterfly

Hi there!  Today I'm sharing a card made for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  Since its inception, Karen Giron has held the weekly challenge on her personal blog, but now she has created a new blog just for the weekly sketch challenge.  For this week's challenge we are to choose one of the previous 258 sketches for our card.  After reviewing them all, it was hard to choose (because they are all fabulous!) but I finally settled on SSSC199.

I started with a 5" x 5" square base out of Crumb Cake card stock and layered on top a panel of Parisian Breeze designer series paper.  I have been hoarding (no other way to put it LOL!) this beautiful dsp for years and decided it was time to start using it up.

The next layer has a base of Baja Breeze with one end punched with the Eyelet Border punch.  Before using a Butterflies thinlit to cut out the butterfly, the white rectangle was sprayed with Vanilla Smooch to give it some sparkle, which is a bit hard to see in the photos.  Another pattern from the same dsp was layered under the die cut opening and then the butterfly wings lifted a bit for dimension.

Since this is a square card, I decided to make an envelope out of Baja Breeze card stock.  It was decorated with images from Butterfly Basics around the front in the same color ink.

As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Be sure to use the link above to check out the new SSSC blog and all the inspiration.  Plus, there's plenty of time to join in.  Have a great week!
