Sketch 49: BUTTERFLIES!

Today is a beautiful day. :) It is the last day of school for the year, and I couldn't be more thrilled!! I am more ready than ever to enjoy summer with my kiddos! Obviously, today is also a sketch challenge day, and I am so thrilled to have you joining me today!

I was really in the mood to create a bold, bright card, so that's exactly what I did. My color palette consists of Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, black, and a little white. I punched my scallops with the SU Scallop Border Punch and stuck on some Silver Rhinestones. I tied some Raven Tulle in a knot around that layer. The focus, my butterflies were cut using the SU Embosslits die Beautiful Wings on Jillibean Soup Staples in Black Sugar. The sentiment comes from the BRAND NEW Lawn Fawn set Bake Me a Cake. Such an adorable set!! I really wanted to use the cakes on this card, but they didn't fit the theme... Soon, I guarantee! :)

We are going to continue with a Blog Hop through the DT members' cards, so your next stop is with my friend Christi!

I had a crazy tough time thinking this one through. Finally, I flipped the piece of paper I had printed the sketch over on my desk and it clicked. Anyway, here is what I finished up with!
