Saturday Sketch

It's time for another Saturday Sketch! Lauren always comes up with fun sketches, and I love to play with them. Starting this week, Lauren is inviting everyone to play along as usual and then upload your creations to Splitcoaststampers. You'll need to check Lauren's blog for the keyword to use when you upload. Now we'll be able to see everyone's creations all in one spot. I can't wait to come home and browse the gallery to see what you all come up with.

This week I decided to use some of my Unity stamps and combine it with some American Crafts patterned paper that I've been wanting to use. This set is called Butterfly Beauty. Aren't the butterfly images just gorgeous! I added a lot of bling to this card in the way of gems and stickles. I should have taken a close-up shot, so you can see the stickles better. Darn! The sentiment is from Verve Visual's Here for You. This card didn't come together easily for me, and I wasn't sure I liked it at first, but it's really grown on me now.{Butterfly Possiblities recipe}
Stamps: Butterfly Beauty by Unity Stamp Co., Here for You by Verve Visual
Ink: Palette Noir
Paper: PTI White, Old Olive, Whisper White, American Crafts

Be sure to visit the other sketch girls' blogs to see their takes on the sketch. Then go make your own and upload it to Splitcoast (remember to check Lauren's blog for the keyword you need to use). I can't wait to see what you do!
