OCC Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Hello! I'm here with a new Our Creative Corner challenge. This week, Silke gave us a sketch to follow. The card I made is one of those that just look better when seen in person. There are a lot of little details that were hard to show in the photo. The colors for this card were simply pulled from the piece of striped patterned paper.

I used Butterfly Kisses (Papertrey Ink) for my butterflies, and the wings are clear embossed. I hope you can see that in the photo below. I used pewter pearls for the butterfly centers. I love this 3D look.
The thread that I wrapped around the card stays in place with a notch that I created with a 1/8" hole punch. I love how that part turned out.

Check out Our Creative Corner to see the sketch and all the DT samples. I hope you can make time to play along!
