Tea Party and Butterflies
Today I had a little free time between laundry and housework to play along with Simply Stampin' Challenge. Here is this week's sketch challenge...
I don't ever make square cards, but decided that this time I would stay true to the sketch and make one. When I saw the sketch, I started thinking about all of those layers and what image to use. I was thinking butterflies would be great for the two circles and wanted to go with a softer color palette. I dug out my retired Tea Party DSP and got busy. The top two butterflies were stamped, cut out, then attached to the main card. I did end up changing one little thing about the sketch. The layer on the left is taller in the sketch than on my card. When I put my layers together, the left piece pretty much covered up the ribbon and I didn't want that! So my left layer is just a bit shorter than the other two.
Card Recipe: Cardstock-whisper white, pretty in pink, Tea Party dsp (ret.), Ink-certainly celery, pretty in pink, so saffron, almost amethyst (ret.), Stamp Set- Precious Butterflies, Accessories- certainly celery ribbon (ret), basic pearls, white gel pen
