2 Sketches 4 You and Colour Throwdown #43
I can't believe this is my 5th card in one week! I'm on a roll! And you know what? The confidence is starting to build more and more. But who am I kidding? I still need help when it comes to colour schemes. So for this card, I chose the colours on this week's Color Throwdown challenge and used them for Laura's Sketch 26 on the 2S4Y blog, which by the way is celebrating their first blogoversary with their 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown on June 1 . They have an incredibly amazing grand prize posted on their blog for the occasion, too, so be sure to check out it out.
I used another one of my precious Sugar Nellie stamped images, the butterfly on the Cricut Happily Ever cart cut at 1 1/2", and the scalloped tags on the Celebrations cart at various sizes, two of which were cut using the shadow feature. The patterned paper was from the Cricut Celebrations pad and were two sheets I thought I would never use. And of course, I added some stickles to the butterfly. I am uber-pleased with this card. Well... except for the pearl I added to cover up the hole on the tag. In hindsight, I should have rotated the tag a bit so the hole would be hidden by the butterfly. Oh, well! Let me know what you think of it.
