12/18/2019 Update: This card is a Top Three winner at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #346!
Here's my card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #346. I don't participate as often as I like because I stay busy with Design Teams. During the DT holiday break, I turned to this challenge because it's a favorite of mine.
I made this card at a crop with limited supplies but I liked it well enough that I'll be using it for a friend's birthday on January 6. Using dies, punches and patterned papers, I assembled the card while following the sketch, did a little sponging, then finished it with a few pearls and some Wink of Stella. The inside was stamped with "Happy Birthday" and decorated with matching papers and a butterfly.
Be sure to give Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge a visit - they have good sketches and are a weekly challenge, beginning each Monday.
