Celebrating Your Day

Having missed a few weekly challenges at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, I was eager to submit a card for Challenge #403. This challenge began on Monday, January 11, and ends on Sunday evening, January 17, 2021. Here is the sketch:

Onto a white card base, I added a panel of lavender cardstock and then another slightly smaller panel in purple. The patterned paper was cut to size and adhered as well as a color-coordinated ribbon. I stamped the sentiment and then die-cut the label shapes. The sentiment was added with foam tape for dimension. The butterfly is a vellum image (ephemera) from the same collection as the patterned paper, colored with Copic markers. In addition, I die-cut the flourish using more of the patterned paper and added it with the butterfly using foam tape. In keeping with the sketch, a few pearls were added. The inside of the card was decorated with paper scraps, a butterfly, and another flourish.
