Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #5

My goodness.... I'm back with another Sketch Challenge completed. This time it is from the very lovely and talented Keesh.

I'm so glad I managed to get this card done... It actually has two purposes, one is it's for the Challenge and the other is it is going to my GORGEOUS Girlfriend for her Birthday.

You'll also be amazed, because this card just like the previous card I posted has NOT ONE trace of pink on it... I know!!!! What on earth is going on in the Kalé household at the moment. All these cards and NO pink...never fear it will be rectified... starting tomorrow I think I'm going on a PINK binge... beware!!!!

OK enough of the waffle let me show you the sketch that Keesh gave us to work with:-


And here is the card I came up with:-


I've used some more retiring products... such as Blue Bayou for the base and the next layer of some Falls Flowers DSP, then I've added another layer of Blue Bayou and Soft Sky and then another of Blue Bayou and the reverse side of the Falls Flowers DSP and added a dash of Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon. The top layer is Blue Bayou and Whisper White and to that I've made a large circle using my Round Tab Punch in Blue Bayou (mmm lots of Blue Bayou on this card isn't there??), and a scallop in Soft Sky then I punched a circle in Whisper White after I'd stamped some flowers from the Live your Dreams set. I stamped the butterfly in YEP Blue Bayou, but I stamped it off three times to get a lighter shade and propped it up on a dimensional. Oh and lets not forget the Dazzling Diamonds I added to the flowers. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and is BLUE BAYOU and the two butterflies above it are in Blue Bayou (GOSH!!) and Old Olive. And one last thing I used my paper piercer to add some little holes at the top.

So there you go my Blue Bayou card!!!!

Hope you like.
