Yes, you guessed it-this week at Stampin' Royalty we have a sketch challenge! When I first looked at the sketch I wasn't sure what i was going to do, but then I remembered that I needed to make a birthday card for my MIL and thought that butterflies would make the perfect embelishments with my favourite image from Just Believe. Now make sure you check out all the other fabulous samples from the Design Team. This week we have added 3 NEW team members, and we have 3 Guest Designers for some added inspiration!
For the card base I used Baja Breeze and added a large matt with Old Olive. I then used a piece of DSP from the Greenhouse Gala with the Daffodil Delight pattern. The image was inked up using Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, and Old Olive markers. I cut of the oval with the Scallop Oval Frame Sizzix Die and just used the oval to stamp on. The butterflies were die cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.
I then stamped a sentiment in Early Espresso ink from Sincere Salutations and framed it with a Styled Vanilla Hodge Podge Designer Label. Using one of the little punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack I created flowers and attached then to either end of the label. Of course I had to add a little bling with Rhinstone Jewels. For the ribbon treatment I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Puch and Early Espresso, then layered some 1/8"Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon.
