Truly Scrumptious blog - sketch challenge #1

Have you seen the new Truly Scrumptious blog? They have a fabulous sketch challenge up right now, and I just had to try it out. My dear friend Danita is on the design team - whoo hoo!!!!

For my card, I did it a little bit differently. Since the sentiment IS the main image, I couldn't think of what to put over on the right side. I thought some swirls might take the place of that little sentiment area, so I cut some out with the little sizzlet die cut from Stampin Up called Swirls Scribbles.

I punched out the pink butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch, bent it on both sides of the body, and then covered each wing with Star Dust Stickles. While waiting for that to dry, I put the rest of the card together. The background papers are from Basic Grey's Perhaps collection, and the sentiment comes from Impression Obsession. I finished this off with some pearl dew drops and Rose grosgrain ribbon (Stampin Up).

This was a great sketch from Truly Scrumptious! I can't wait to see what else they have in store for us! :-)
