The Challenge #75

Today is a Wild Card Challenge for #75 of The Challenge, and this week this means a sketch.

This card did not start out so monochromatic, but as I started to pull the elements together it just sort of fell into that. I used the Kaiser Craft #Me paper pad and the die cut pages just made it easy.

I die cut the butterfly then put it through my Minc to add a shiny pewter. I love the sentiment DP running along the middle and added some accent with black twine.

In place of the half circle I used a die cut from the pack in a gray woodgrain. I added in a little gray piece of cardstock behind the Smile sentiment then popped it up with foam tape. I added a few gems to the butterfly body and called it done.

Stop over at Always Playing with Paper to take a look at what the design team has created for the challenge.
