Give Thanks

It's Friday! yahoo!  and you know what that means, its time for another sketch from one of the design team members from Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge.  Please join us for our blog tour.  Tammy F. is the talented member that provided us with this week's sketch.   The only thing we ask, is that you use your Stampin' Up! supplies.

Here's the sketch:

Here is what I created:
This card was alot of fun to create!  I like to add layers to my cards, and sometimes the layers are in ink and not paper.  I took a scrap piece of Pool Party cardstock.  I used the same color classic ink and this wonderful stencil to create that blurry flourish to the left side.  I then inked the En Francais script background stamp in Sahara Sand classic ink.  I layed the pool party cardstock onto of the stamp and tapped with my finger tips.  I didn't want the script to be complete.  I wanted the lettering to be random and faded in some areas.  I stamped 'Give Thanks' in soft suede classic ink towards the bottom right of the card.  I used scrap pieces of Crumb Cake DSP to create the rectangle and scallop circle.  I used Certainly Celery DSP to create the different sized butterflies.  For the large, middle butterfly, I also cut a butterfly with the matching cardstock.  I layered them together.  I also used a dimensional to give this creature some height off the card, and curled the wings.  I added three tiny faux half pearls to the body of the butterfly.
Thank you for spending a few minutes with me.  Now, don't forget, Tammy B. is your next stop on the blog tour!
