Hello, Butterfly

Howdy to you!  I appreciate the company.   Over at Sketch Frenzy Friday, we share some of the responsibilities, and we each take a turn at providing the sketches.  That way there is a variety of creativity, and no ONE person gets stuck with all that.  So, this week, Deb C. is the master mind behind this weeks sketch.  And I have to admit, I loved the sketch!

The sketch:

You will need to look close, but there are three different size matts: dark pink, white, and a light pink floral.  Also, don't forget the grey circle.  And for those who follow, know that I like to mix things up.  I don't change or disregard the sketch, I 'play' with it.  I'll show you my card, and then explain.

Ok, so to start.  I didn't add the pink floral matt.  I also didn't tie a bow with my ribbon.  But, don't let that throw you.  Pennants are big right now.  And I love that shape.  So, I did the chevron cut at the end of one of my matts - green polka dotted paper.  This new Twitterpated DSP is just sooo gorgeous, so I HAD to use it!  So, the floral pattern paper, the baja breeze pattern paper, and the blushing bride pattern paper are all from the Twitterpated DSP.  Aren't they just soo pretty?  The pear pizzazz polka dot pattern paper and the pear pizzazz pattern paper used for the butterfly are both from subtles DSP.   I wanted to make the butterfly pop, so I clipped on one of those tiny clothes pins for its body.   I used my two-way glue pen to adhere some dazzling diamond glitter to the clothes pin.  But, it still looked too plain, so I added a tiny scallop circle of DSP, a tiny scallop circle clear button, and tied them together with some pool party bakers twine.  
Thank you for looking.  Now continue with our blog hop, and see what Tammy F. has created!
