Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge

When I saw the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge; I wasn't sure at first if I wanted to play along.  I have to admit that this sketch was a bit of a challenge for me as far as picking papers was concerned.  I am glad that I persisted as I am very pleased with how this card turned out.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Cardstock, turquoise rhinestones and ribbon is from my stash.  The design paper is from Echo Park Hello Summer 6 x 6 paper pad.  I love this paper pad and wish I could get my hands on another one!  The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms and was stamped with Versa Color Turquoise.  I also sponged the edges of the papers with the ink.  The butterfly is a Memory Box die - Pippi Butterfly. I'm quite pleased with how this card turned out.  I will also be entering this card into One Stop Craft Challenge which is to use stripes.  

Thanks for stopping by!
