Cardabilities Sketch #102 Reveal!

I really enjoyed this card sketch as it made me want to do something different than flowers!  I love flowers, but I really wanted to add something made of vellum - so I picked butterflies of course!!!

Here is the great sketch by Karan Gerber....

And here is my take...

I created the background using some gesso and Maya Mists.  I cut out the three layer shapes using my Cameo and then added some vellum butterflies that I punched out using my Martha Stewart punches.  The small banner/stitched piece is from Crate Paper.  Have I said how much I love gold lately???  Well that gold sentiment is from the Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper line - I just notched out each end to make it look like a small banner!  Again - with the gold - I dipped a mist lid into some gold Heidi Swap color shine and used it to create some of the small circles on the background - I love how it turned out!

  1. Your card is so original, artsy and fun. I love what you did with the background! I think this card might be just perfect for summer. Great job!
