Revisiting a Paper Players Sketch

I LOVE challenges, and last week I gave you a little insight into why I enter them. Recently I was introduced to The Paper Players blog by a friend and quickly fell in love with this weekly challenge. This week is a big milestone...their 100th Challenge! Not only are they having a little DT blog hop but we are to pick a past challenge and tell why we liked it. Well, I had some trouble with this! They have easy links to follow for past colors and sketches and I quickly became overwhelmed with all the wonderful choices....how could I possibly pick?? After a good thirty minutes perusing the eye candy options, I made my decision. And why I didn't make this decision in the first place I'll never know...it was a no brainer...jeeze!

I chose a little sketch that I have previously submitted a card on. I decided on this sketch because it marks a milestone for me personally. This is officially the first non-DeNami challenge that I have ever placed in. Yes, there was A LOT of self back patting ;)  Between this and then a few days later my "tips and tricks" segment here on the Addict blog being linked on the Tsukineko Facebook Page, I was flying high and grinning so much my cheek muscles were sore, lol! I rate this right up there with my First DeNami placing and my first school girl crush...sigh. I'm still kinda giddy over it a couple of weeks later :)

I'll shut up now cause I could go on forever about it, lol. See, told ya I was still giddy!! Lets get to the sketch and my new card, shall we?

Here's the sketch...

Here's what I submitted previously...

For this new submission I decided to go in the opposite direction. I chose my MUCH loved DeNami butterflies and a fun summery color palette.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget, there's still time to enter the challenge right here on DeNami Addict...just click the link on the sidebar for all the info!!
