The Paper Players Challenge #53 - A Sketch

This cute website called The Paper Players  has a weekly challenge starting every Sunday and I just had to join in the fun with this cute sketch PP53 designed by: Lesley Croghan. If you would to play also, go to their website by clicking here.

Here is what I came up with based on this cute sketch:

Here is a close up picture of how I sponge daubed the butterfly using pretty in pink to add in some color to the card. This paper called: Elegant Soiree (117163) is one of my all time favorites and sorry to see it being retired.

Take advantage with only 4 days left to pick some of this gorgeous thing is it's 25% off.

I used a few punches for this card. I took the 1 3/8" circle punch to cut out the butterfly which I stamped in Early Espresso than I adhered that to the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch using Marina Mist cardstock. Next, I used the circle scissor plus to cut out a 1 7/8" circle in Bashful Blue.

Finally, I took my stampin dimensionals and put them under the scallop circle and than again under the 1 7/8" circle to make the card pop out more. Added some basic pearls to embellish. I used the stamp set called: Thanks for caring.

Feel free to email me anytime if you have any question on how I did something or what I used. I would love to hear from you.
