Sketch 33 with Lauren Meader!!!
Welcome to the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge for this week! This week, we are bringing you something NEW and EXCITING! We are having our first CELEBRITY Sketch challenge today! :) And our first sketch and inspiration comes from none other than the amazingly talented and sweet LAUREN MEADER. That's right! Our sketch has been provided by Lauren, and she is also playing along with our challenge this week. :) Please be sure to visit Lauren's blog, leave her some love, and thank her for playing along! In honor of Lauren, we are focusing this week on incorporating BUTTERFLIES into our creations! If you have butterflies, use 'em! If not, that's okay...we still want you to play along, of course!
Here is the original card of Lauren's from which this sketch comes:
And this is Lauren's BEAUTIFUL card she created for this week!
For my card base, I used PTI Kraft...WOW! This stuff is perfect for a card base, just like the rest of their cardstocks. I layered on a piece of Jillibean Soup Olive Oil paper from their Minestrone line. I love the deep chocolate color with these ivory flowers! Then I simply stamped some of the butterflies from the Unity Bevy of Butterflies stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink onto SU Melon Mambo cardstock, cut them out carefully, and stuck them on with glue dots so I could help them to "fly"! I outlined some of the details on the butterflies in Crystal Stickles. The sentiment, stamped in Melon Mambo, is also from the Bevy of Butterflies set. I added a few silver rhinestones to the body of each butterfly to complete the card.
