Stamping 411 Sketch #243

Hi Everyone,
Are you ready for another sketch challenge from Stamping 411? I hope so. This is a great sketch and so fun to work with. Don’t forget to give it a try and upload your card to our gallery. It’s so much fun!!!!
Here is the sketch…
Sketch 243
….and my interpretation.
I had tons of fun creating this card.
I started with a card base of Very Vanilla cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Followed with a mat of Soft Suede cut to 4 x 4 3/4 and the bottom is punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. My Designer Series Paper is from the Attic Boutique Pack and it’s cut to 3 7/8 x 4 5/8. I then added a strip of the darker DSp to the bottom. It’s cut to 4 x 1 and taped to the back of the Soft Suede Mat.
I tied a double loop bow with my Soft Suede Taffeta and attached to the back of the mat before taping to the Very Vanilla card front. The Oval is done with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder and then I cut it out just beyond the beading.
The Butterfly is from the Creative Elements Set and stamped ion Baja Breeze to coordinate with the DSP. Then I edged it with the Soft Suede Marker before stamping. Make sure to huff on it to get the full effect.
I added some pearls to the scallops to dress it up a bit.
That’s it for today. I hope that you enjoyed my take on the sketch and will give it a try. We always love seeing your creations.
Have a great weekend.
