Tuesday Morning Sketches #292

We are so close to the first day of spring, everything is so green and pretty right now. With it being Tuesday we have a new Tuesday Morning Sketches for you this morning. Debbie has generously offered to be this week's sponsor.

I flipped and turned the sketch to accommodate this pretty image which I die cut from a corner of a 12 x 12 designer paper page, the panels turned out a bit larger then the sketch is designed for but I love how it turned out.

I added lots of layers created with a stitched rectangle die cut. I die cut the butterfly twice and popped it up with foam tape adding some gems for the body. I added some texture to the strip of card stock across the center of the card and I finished with the sentiment.

The blue card stock has some small silver specks in it that the camera would not pick up but I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the butterflies body to blend it in.

Supplies: Cream and blue card stock, Designer Paper - Pion, Simon Says Stamps- die cut and stamps, Memory Box die cut, embossing folder.
The design team has created some fabulous  cards, stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to take a look.
