Sketch time at Papertake Weekly ......

Time for a sketch over at Papertake Weekly - there is a great prize to win this week so please hop over and check out the inspiration from the Design Team - you have a whole week to get your card in!

I used one of the new printed die cuts from LOTV - this one was hand coloured by Bev Rochester before it was printed - great idea - and I have teamed it with green papers and some lilac butterflies which I snipped from one strip cut with my new border die (CC Designs Butterfly Border Die)   I cut a single strip from some faux diamante gem mesh and stuck a tiny strip of three onto each butterfly.

I added 25mm white fan pattern cluny cotton lace, orchid tiny ric rac, a single strip of faux diamante cut from a wider piece plus a nice bow made from 38mm mauve taffetta - then I carried on with my 'bling is best' theme lol, and added a 20mm diamante spacer with an Aurora crystal flat back gem in the centre.  The sketch calls for three items in a row to the left of the image, so I added three 5mm clear self adhesive gems.

Lace, ric rac, ribbon, diamante spacer, flat back gem, clear gems and faux diamante gem all from here
See you soon, Mary G x

This is such a beautiful card Mary. I like the idea of the coloured images and the one you've used looks just perfect!
