Butterfly Moments - FTTC #58

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC58)! This week Silke Ledlow is our challenge host! Silke has designed a sketch for us to try. Actually, Silke designed two sketches. Are you are feeling the round or the square? You could be feeling a bit of both and play twice! As far as sketches go, you can turn them increase or decrease the sizes a bit, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. We would love to see what you create with us this week!

I chose to do the square card--I'm not a fan of round cards so I was so happy to see we had a choice, LOL! Yeah, I know it's a challenge and it should *challenge* one but I'm just not lovin' round cards :)

I'm using some of the new Green At Heart Basic Grey paper. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and the butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Classic Ivory card stock. Both images are from the Butterfly Moments set. I colored the butterfly with Copic markers and cute the sentiment out with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die. Then I sponged around the edge with ink and added some Dew Drops.

Check out the other designers blogs to see what they created with the sketch!
