TSOT Sketch #115

Hi Lovelies,

It's another wonderful sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesdays.  I am loving that I am slowly building up my cards again all by making two cards from each sketch.  I find that having a sketch cuts down on the amount of time that I waste.  So here is this week's sketch & my take on it.

This card was suppose to be a kids birthday card!  Funny how some cards have other ideas & I must admit I am pleased with the way this card turned out.  I had so much fun using up more scraps & I must admit I did cut into one piece of 12 x 12" pp for the background.  I stamped the butterfly three times.  Once onto the background square & then twice onto the yellow dot pp.  You can't really see it from this photo but I have layered the wings & used pop dots on the outer edge of the top wing & glue dots at the body just to make it more life like I guess.  I then added some Stickles to the wing tips just for added fun.  

This next card is just an example of what can be achieved with these sketches.  There is no stamping at all on this particular card.  I used pp & Stickers to create this one.  I had forgotten that I had these gorgeous stickers & was trying to find something else for the card when I stumbled onto these & as they say I had an "Aha!" moment & put this card together really quickly.  Had I planned this card I would have probably used a background stamp like this one & a soft Distress Ink like Bundled Sage or even Antique Linen.

Another awesome sketch Paula and love your cards. I'm starting to use sketches more and more to help me when I just can't think of what to do.
