Butterflies....


I have  been so excited to show you this card for this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where we are being sponsored by the fabulous
Digi Stamp Boutique .I have wanted to use this fantastic set "Butterflies" for a while and finally I am getting to.
I used Prima's Sasha Collection design paper for my background and I love the mix of blues and greens. This set comes with a single butterfly and the set of two.  Don't you just love this variegated cotton thread that I found at Walmart, lol, this determined my color palette, sometimes it is just the smallest thing that sparks my direction with a card.



If you are the Grand Prize winner this week at SSW, then you will have your choice of 6 digital images from Digi Stamp and I know you will find lots you want in this fabulous store. In fact, why not go take a look around now?

Our sketch this week is one that I am sure you will love working with and we will love visiting with you and seeing your creations.




I know that we changed the rules a couple of weeks ago asking you to use one of sponsors images to play, we are relaxing that beginning this week. We would still love for you to support our wonderful sponsors and use one of their images if possible, but it is not required. We also would love to see our sketch posted on your blog post when entering, thanks so much for your understanding as we get this new phase all worked out....we appreciate each and everyone that joins us each week.

Now I wish you all a Happy Day and off you go to check out SSW......

Patti,
So pretty and spring like. I love these butterflies. This sketch is awesome! The variegated thread you found is that lucky find. I have some time to play today and the next so I hope to get a bunch done! How is reorganizing going? Mine is going well but will be in progress for a bit still.
