Hello - Sketch Saturday

 
 
 
 
This is my second week as guest designer for Sketch Saturday for the March. This Month's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and they are offering a $25 dollar gift certificate to the winter!
 
I used a flower from the Simon Says Stamp set "Always and Forever".  I picked some bright and cheery flowered papers from My Minds Eye as I am ready for spring and for the flowers to bloom! I matched my Copics to the paper: Y15-17, G12-24-94, YR00-12-18. Used a few die cuts, of course, Quick Cut's Nesting Doily Circles, Amuse studio's Hello, and Memory Box's Butterfly Wings.  I colored the butterfly in Copics, covered it in VersaMark ink,  put holographic embossing powdered on it, then heat embossed it.  The close-up below does not quite show the sparkle as well in person but it shows you a hit of the shine.


I hope you will hop over to Sketch Saturday and see the stunning designs of the Sketch Saturday ladies and join the challenge! 

A few fun challenges:
Simon Says, Things That Fly
Glitter N Sparkle: Glitter & Sparkle
Die Cuttin' Diava's #207: Welcome Spring
Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge #26: Butterfly + P for Patterned Paper

Donna, the sparkle does indeed show up very glistening on your lacy butterfly. I love the breath of spring that this card invokes, and such a pretty flower to grace that delicate doily. Beautiful papers and that die cut sentiment dress this pretty card so nicely. Thanks for the prayers for our blog friend. TFS & Hugs

Hi Donna and welcome to my butterfly challenge. Your close up of the butterfly shows the sparkle on the wings and the perfect match you have achieved against the backing paper. I can feel that Spring is right around the corner by looking at your card. Thankyou for fluttering by my #26 hugs Mrs A.

Very pretty - love the embossing with the holographic powder, that was so much fun to do here and makes a beautiful addition to any card. Love the blue/orange color palette you used.
