UPDATE: Just found out that this card made the TOP-10 this month. I'm so excited! That's the second time I've made the TOP-10 recently. It's so encouraging!!! Thanks to Erin and the rest of the staff at DCWV. You can tell how excited I am - see how big I'm typing!?! And, it's purple! lol
I created this card for the DCWV August Card Sketch Challenge using the beautiful watercolored cardstock from The Painted Petals Stack . This is one of my favorite stacks. Of course, I say that about every new stack I get from them. I really like the quality and variety they put out.
I made this 5" x 7" card from a sheet that had little butterflies on one side. I just couldn't bring myself to hide them, so I made my banners short enough for the butterflies to show. I used the blues, purples and yellows on that sheet to pick stock for my banners.
I almost always make my own embellishments like I did on this card. Using a variety of flower punches, I began stacking layers from the same sheets used to make the banners. I heat-embossed the sentiment and matted it with matching stock.
