The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge

Hi all! Today I'm sharing a card I created for this week's Sweet Stop sketch challenge. This week's sketch is, in a word, fabulous! What a great way to showcase a variety of designer papers and images. I have a feeling that I'll be using this sketch again and again.

This week's challenge was to not only use the sketch but to include "winged things." Of course when I saw the challenge, I immediately thought of one of my all time favorite Sweet 'n Sassy images, the butterflies from the Everyday Miracles stamp set. The paper I used on my card is from Graphic 45, such a great line and perfect to showcase this beautiful butterfly image. I colored the butterfly with Copics and then misted it with gold shimmer mist, which you can just see a hint of in the photo. The background behind the butterfly was created with Distress Inks, a blending tool, and a spritz of water.

Enjoy today's card and be sure to check out the Sweet Stop challenge...prizes could be involved!
