Six Chicks Sketch #18


Metallic elements can really spruce up a card! Brads, inks, rhinestones, or hardware...bring it ALL out for this week's Sketch and Product Challenge!

Happy Thursday, everyone! I am sorry I've been gone for a while. I have had a pretty bad flare-up of my Crohn's Disease, and I have gotten a little behind!! Of course, taken care of our customer's orders is first priority, so the blog has taken the backseat a little bit. ;) But I am better, and I am back!

For my card, I have created a card base with two pieces of 5 1/2" circle cardstock by Waste Not Paper. The color is Pool...isn't it pretty? (These are on clearance at Limelight for 20 CENTS apiece!!) I layered on my *favorite* Basic Grey Urban Prairie for some color and design, and I added a stamped image from Unity Stamp Company's Something Within stamp set. I accented with a Kiwi Kiss photo corner, some Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones, and... the piece de resistance... a Prima BUTTERFLY!! Isn't it GORGEOUS?? I just love those little butterflies. They really make a project special. The rhinestones and butterfly, which contains wire and rhinestones, counts for my metallics! I moved my embellishment to the top so that it would fit, but you can see below that the original sketch calls for it to be in the lower left. :)
