Thinking of you Friend

When you come across a sketch that you just love, what do you do?  I know I save all the sketches I like to my hard drive and have them going back a few years.  It's always nice to get a jump start on a card by seeing a sketch you like.

This was one that just drew me, nice and simple but leaves a lot to work with as well.  Another sketch I can see using over and over again and making a set of cards with.

This card uses a few limited edition sets from Clear & Simple Stamps.  I love this color combo with Kraft, Purples and Green/Moss/Pear like color.  I added some Crystal Ice stickles to the one butterfly to make it stand out from the others.

Here are a few other challenges I'm playing in today:
7 Kids College Fund Challenge: Color Me Purple! 

Hope you all are having a great Saturday!  We are heading out to a natural beauty pageant today to benefit one the Humane Society's in our area and then we'll be at baseball the rest of the weekend.

Not really sure how you made those small butterflies, but wow, they compliment the big one so beautifully and look really cool! Love the subtle nature of them. So glad that you found a SSD sketch and got to play along too!
