WaltzingMouse Sketch Challenge #14

I feel like I'm on a bit of a roll here. It's been a while since I've had 2 cards to post in just as many days but here goes.


I made this card last night for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #14.


I started with a kraft base and then added designer paper from DCWV's Garden Party stack. I've been itching to break out some of the yummy papers in that stack and this butterfly design is one of my favorites. This photo doesn't catch the sparkle in the paper, but I promise it's there.

I used stamps from Fancy Phrases and Very Vintage Labels No. 4. I only inked half of the sentiment at a time to make it fit in the space, but I think it would've fit perfectly had I turned the label on it's side. I don't remember the brown ink color off hand, but it is a Tim Holtz distress ink, as is the pinkish "Worn Lipstick" color.

I accented with some gingham ribbon, gold flourish stickers, and a shiny gold butterfly just to give a little more sparkle.

If you haven't played along yet, you still have 2 days to enter this week's challenge (link on sidebar). There is a new challenge every Saturday so be sure to check back for even more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a good one.
