Sparkle and butterflies....

I'm back with another card for the awesome sketch challenge over on the DeNami Design Blog.

When coming up with a card, I give it a lot of thought and usually have a plan...I start with a sketch and doodle a design on it or in this case, write in what I'm thinking...

I decided to get seriously creative with this one, It's basically a one layer card...I started out using the mini grass stamp stamped randomly across the base of the card, then for the punched edge I used a sweet little stamp that has peeks and valleys, just like a pretty punched edge would have. For the bar going across the card, I created a flower using a sentiment, small daisy, butterfly, tweety bird and leaves. The tweety bird is the only thing that is layered / paper pieced on this card. To finish it all off I added some white and green sheer ribbon that I twisted together. Did ya notice the little trail the butterfly made...I wanted it to look like she wrote the sentiment. So, do ya see the sketch in this card???

If they gave out an award for the most glitter I think I would win hands down! Just about every inch of this card is glittered...Magenta for the flowers, Citrone and Gamma Green for the grass, leaves & flower stem, Amethyst for the tweety bird & butterflies. The only part not glittered is the butterfly trail and sentiment...that's a lot of glitter, but it's how I roll ;)  There's no such thing as too much glitter....just sayin'

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!
