Beate Weekend Sketch #62

It's time for another one of Beate's Sketches! I just LOVED this sketch! I always used to make standard 4.25"x5.5" cards. Now I just LOVE to make this size (3"x6") and the 4.25" square. It's been at least a week since I made a long card, so I was excited to use this sketch! :) I used the Pocket Silhouettes set for this card and the Bella Rose Designer paper. I inked up the flower stamp in Red Riding Hood and then colored the stems of the flowers over with an Old Olive marker. Since it "needed" something else, I added the butterfly using the Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch. Make sure you stop by to see what gorgeous creations Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have come up with for this sketch! Thanks for stopping by today and have a WONDERFUL Friday! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Pocket Silhouettes (SU); Paper- Bella Rose, Chocolate Chip (SU); olive (The Paper Company), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Red Riding Hood, Old Olive (SU); Accessories- Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain, 1 3/8" circle punch, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip markers (SU); Royal Butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), paper piercer; Finished card measures 6"x3".
