Wednesday Sketch Day!

It's another Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge!

Close Up.

Wednesdays just aren't the same without them (and neither are Tuesday nights as that is when I usually make the card). You will find the sketch here: SC179. Rox71 really picked a great one this time, and I had a lot of fun with it!

The Card.

You are probably sick of it by now, but I used Brown, Green and Orange again, but I threw in a little bit of Pink this time to spice it up!! If you haven't tried Prima's new paper....you are missin' out! I used Prima Urban Cosmos and I think it is gorgeous....every single piece of paper in the whole pack is gorgeous (and it comes with extra goodies too!) I decided to keep the base of the card pretty simple. I Cuttlebugged the already-polka-dotted paper with Swiss Dots and since I didn't want white dots (what Swiss dots will do to patterned paper) I ran some Versamagic Spanish Olive gently over the top and it was a perfect match! I LOVE this ink! I then used the Fiskars Treading Water (scalloped edge) punch to create the Choc. Chip pieces under the ribbon. I used an extra piece of Choc. Chip to cover up the holes as I only wanted the scalloped edge to show, no holes. The ribbon is May Arts Double-Sided Satin and it is gorgeous! This is the same ribbon as I used yesterday on the motorcycle card...I just used the reverse side. I wanted the focus to be on the image so I dressed it up a bit. I used the Inkadinkado Fancy That butterfly. Stamped it, colored it, cut it out, and then popped up the butterfly. I used some old retired SU! wire to create the antenna, then I used a few tiny Prima flowers and some bling to finish it off! I layered it on a couple of punched scallops, and I used my new hole-punch shape guide thingy (a prize from Jennifer Greco's Blog, Thank you ever so much) and it worked perfectly....I think I am going to be using these often! Well, I guess that about sums up the card! Thanks for looking!
