Wednesday's Sketch Card!


I was finally able to take a picture of the card I made for Wednesday's SCS sketch challenge! It was a tough challenge but I am really satisfied with how my card turned out! I made it while Leanne was here and she was definitely a big help! Sometimes I have these serious brain farts and I just get stuck so having her there was a blessing! :D Anyway, when I first saw the sketch with the huge image panel I panicked because I don't deal well with big images! However, I then realized that I could use a beautiful piece of dp as my main image so I started digging around my paper and pulled out this GORGEOUS piece from s.e.i! I LOVE having it be the focus of the card because it is just fabulous. I am not sure if you can see the glitter on it but each butterfly is covered in glitter along with the outlining on the flowers. I layered the dp on a piece of pink pirouette cardstock and then the chocolate chip card base. For some finishing touches I added this beautiful 1" grosgrain ribbon along with the three dew drops. However, once I got the card finished I realized I didn't have a sentiment and I really felt like it needed one so Leanne reminded me of my rub-ons and I added it to the ribbon! It was the perfect place and I have Leanne to thank for that! :D I hope that you enjoy this card as much as I do! Have a great rest of the day. Hopefully it is warmer there than it is here. It has been a whopping 55 degrees all day long with some gusty winds and rain. However, I actually don't mind the cool air because it means I get to throw my comfy sweatshirt and jeans on! :D Alright, until tomorrow, take care!
