Create!!

It's Wednesday, and that means a sketch challenge on SCS. I love doing their sketches when I have the time. This week, I had the colors picked out...no problem. Knew the stamps I wanted to use....no problem. Embellishing....now that was a problem. I had the hardest time putting this all together. When I finally got my flowers to look right, I messed it up with the butterflies. They're adorable and easy to stamp with since they're clear, I was just in too big of a hurry to get this card done. They come with the Hero Arts Heartfelt Messages set. Grrr. Couldn't figure out what primas, if any to use in the corner....and it definitely needed something there. The bg peach piece...still not happy with it, but I just stopped. Didn't know what else to do. Anyway...I stamped the Penny Black flowers in Cameo Coral, and *thumped* them with Rose Red. The stems are Always Artichoke. I then spritzed them about 4 times and stamped them on Bazzill. All the paper is Bazzill btw, except the brown...it's SU Choc. Chip. I stamped the sentiment with SU Choc. Chip too. The flourish is Cameo Coral, stamped off. The flowers, flourish and butterflies all have Sakura Stardust on them, but it doesn't show up in the pictures. I found the charm at michaels in the jewelry section. It's by Bluemoon Beads, Heart and Soul. It comes with 4 other birds too. The corner piece was embossed with the new cuttlebug embossing folder Diamonds in the Rough. I think it looks like it was weaved. I loved the effect. All the panels were ink distressed with Ranger Old Paper and Walnut Distress inks. Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
