Weekend Sketch Challenge #110


It's time for another Weekend Sketch Challenge! This week's sketch is being hosted by Lori, so head on over to her blog to post your link if you play along. . .and we hope you do!

For my card today, I used an older Verve set called Beautiful Kindness. I stamped the butterfly image in Versamark onto black cardstock and then embossed with black embossing powder. I loved the tone-on-tone look. . .especially when the embossed butterfly is shiny. It makes it more elegant, don't you think? Don't know if you can see it in the picture, but the black piece of cardstock in the background is dry embossed with large polka dots. I used the Polka Dots QuicKutz folder for that. The focal piece was die cut using the Labels Four Nestabilities.



For more inspiration using this sketch, visit Cami, Jenn, Lori, and Sharon! Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous weekend!
