Build A Sketch Challenge #5

This is the sketch I have created with this months selected pieces. This is for the Build a Sketch Challenge #5 over at Stamping Vacation.

Now this is the card I came up with using my sketch. I am so happy with this card. I just love the colours and the way that my mistake made my card better. :-) I have used a pre-scored white card for the base card. Then a layer of this mottled design paper from Stampin Up. The flower image is from SU Playful Petals and I have used my aqua pen and the SU Soft Subtles Inkspots to colour it in. Now the mistake in my card was to go around the edges of the flower with my brown felt pen to hide the white cut marks and then use my aqua pen near that brown. It all bled, but once I added the glitter I was really happy with the end result. The side panel is a piece of SU Perfect Plum and SU design paper in the Certainly Celery colouring. The leaves are from the SU Playful Petals set which I coloured with Certainly Celery. Topped them with these lovely clear butterfly stickers from the Sticker Store. I added SU So Saffron card to the back of them.

I have made this card also to fit in with my Weekly Inspiration Challenge over at Craftmad which is 'Blooms'.

I would also like to add this to the Sir Stampalot Challenge # 2 - Blooms and Butterflies
