Red Rose Vine ~ CCMC393

Happy Thursday everyone!  It's time for another fabulous Create With Connie and Mary Challenge.  It's sketch week.....

I was a little stumped by this sketch at first.  I've never been a huge fan of repeated patterns like this.  
I perused my stamps to give me some inspiration and voila!  The rose vine from {Floral Wing}!  Perfect!  Each vine has four little roses on it which fit the sketch just right.  
I decided to go with red roses since we are close to Valentine's Day.  

After I stamped the roses I went over each one with Crystal Effects to make them stand out even more.  It's hard to see in the photos.  
Instead of a greeting I chose to put a butterfly fluttering down on the vines.  I cut out a butterfly using my Bold Butterfly framelits and Botanical Gardens Specialty vellum.  I perched him on the vines, but he didn't seem like enough, so I added in a red butterfly from {Kinda Eclectic} and topped it off with the small butterfly from {Butterfly Basics}.  I used a little strip of pearls for the butterfly body.

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Floral Wings, Butterfly Basics, Kinda Eclectic, Hardwood
Ink: Smokey Slate, Real Red, Mossy Meadow
Paper: White, Sahara Sand, Botanical Gardens Specialty vellum
Accessories: Linen Thread, pearls, Elegant Butterfly punch 

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!


  1. Wow! I love your interpretation of the sketch! I'm not into little images, so it was a challenge for me, too! Those red vines are BEAUTIFUL! Great job with the sketch this week!

  2. This is so much fun! I could only think of doing each dot on the sketch as a stamped image...but look at you! LOVE the way you used the vines for the sketch! I really love this stamp set also and am always looking for ways to use it...thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love this idea, and I also love how the vines look over the Hardwood! What a fabulous take on the sketch!

  4. This is just beautiful Jenny - I would never have thought of using the sketch in this way, so very clever and both your card and Alison's make me look at the sketch in a whole new light! I love the roses against the hardwood and the sweet layered butterfly!
