Cardabilities Sketch #71

Hello everyone! I am sharing with you my first DT reveal with Cardabilities. Karan has created a wonderful sketch which is as follows:

I went with a vintage feel, so I started by distressing and inking the edges of my paper. I also stitched around my papers as well.

I added a butterfly to my design. I used some adhesive pearl flourishes to add some whimsy. I cut pieces and repositioned them to suit my paper.

My sentiment is a rubon that I had. It really compliments the images in the papers.


Paper: Prima Nature Garden, Stampin' Up! Very vanilla

Ink: Walnut stain distress ink

Other: Memory Box kaleidoscope butterfly, JustRite vintage label and banner dies, Francheville vintage button, Kaisercraft basisc rubons, Prima petal pins pearls, Craftworks bling swirls, Hug Snug lyric rose seam binding, Zutter Distrezz it all.

I hope that you'll join us and create a card for the challenge. Take a look at the other designer's blogs for some inspiration. Remember, you have two weeks to complete this sketch challenge and don't forget to link back to Cardabilities.

Thanks for stopping by!
