Sketch Time at Flutter By Wednesday!

Welcome to another Flutter By Wednesday! The CHALLENGE this week is to create a card using the fabulous SKETCH by Mercy.


Of course in order for it to be a Flutter By you need to make sure that card also has a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL on it!

For my creation, I got to FINALLY ink up a SWEET PEA stamp. I know, I know - I'm the last one to use one...but my motto is BETTER LATE THAN NEVER so here goes!


I'm so FREAKIN' pleased with how this turned out. I bought like 5 different Sweet Pea images and after getting them I kind of got nervous...I mean have you SEEN the creations with these babies? GORGEOUS, I tell you! Anyway, I decided to use COME SOFTLY first to kind of get me warmed up...not too shabby if I do say so myself! What do you think?

I wanted to draw attention to the butterfly (DUH...it's Flutter By Wednesday) so I stamped the butterfly, colored it with copics, applied a little glitter, cut it out and then put Diamond Glaze all over it. Once dried I adhered it to my card using pop dots. Here is a better view:

Man, I wish my eyes were that sexy, lol! I hope you find time to play along! The sketch by Mercy is a fun one - so many possibilities! Remember to visit the Flutter By Wednesday Blog for all the details on how you can participate - hope to see YOUR creation!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

(oh - and to answer the question you left on my blog - nope - I didn't make the paper - I had it in my stash from forever ago and I don't remember where I got it. I've been hoarding it because it was so pretty but finally am letting it go...or trying to anyway. :)! lol!)
