I made this card for Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 179. It also fits into Create with Connie and Mary 242 using Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, and Summer Starfruit.
I loved this sketch the moment I laid eyes on it. I've been on a layered flag kick lately and this was just up my alley. You could do so many cool things with this sketch and I'm sure everyone will! I can't wait to see what turns up in the gallery link!
I started with the butterflies from the Kindness Matters set. These were actually made to go on another card, but they weren't working for that, so I set them aside for another time. I stamped them in Stazon Black ink, colored them with markers, cut them out and then oozed Crystal Effects on each one. I like the 3-D effect it gives. The Primrose Petals circle was another scrap I had laying on my desk. I added a vanilla scalloped circle that I ran through the Big Shot with my Square Lattice EF and secured the butterflies on it with mini glue dots. I stamped one of the Elements of Style images on the Raspberry Ripple card base in Primrose ink, then layered on a Primrose piece that I had embossed with my Chevron EF, added the fun banners made for the Print Poetry DP, and put on the little strip of Summer Starfruit cardstock tied up with vanilla string. The last thing was to add the Thinking Of You banner. This card came together very easily, and I love it when that happens! You will definitely be seeing this sketch again from me!
