How About a Sketch

Supples: Card base is Very Vanilla CS. All other DP is Basic Grey Lemonade. Sentiment is Innovative Stamp Creations; Flower created with MS Stacking Daisy punch and Leafy Branch. Butterfly created using Purple Daisy Designs Butterfly stamp and accompanying punch (fabulous!!). Hologram glitter added to butterfly. Additional embellishments: Basic Grey coordinating brads, SU flower punch and Purely Pomegranite DS ribbon, Nestibilites Label 2 or 3 or 4, I forget which, Cuttlebug Houndstooth embossing folder.
O.k. Sometimes I can be a real dork. I looked at the sketch challenge over on SCS today when I got home from work and thought it would be simple and fun; and because there were multiple layers, it would be a good way to use up some DP scraps. So I drew out the sketch real quick, took it to my craft room and worked up a card. I did not end up using scraps, I broke open my new Basic Grey Lemonade paper. And proceeded to use a piece upside-down. See the upside down cherries? I used my butterfly stamp and matching punch from Purple Daisy Designs. And then I decided the sketch just wasn't right. So I went back to my computer, looked at the sketch again and realized I had drawn it wrong. Or at least, not completely right. Where was my brain?? Anyhow, that's what I get for rushing through a card after a long day at work!! But you know what they say, a bad day card making is better than any day at work. uhhh, I know... "they" don't really say that, huh? :o) Hugs all!

But I like it...upside down cherries and all! Beautiful details Anne. I personally think we should all quit our real jobs so that we could stamp all day long. :-D Great job, GF!
