...Flutter By Wednesday #88 ~ Sketch

This is my submission for today's Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #88...a sketch designed by ME!!! Danni contacted me a while back to be one of her guest designers, and asked if I would be willing to design a layout for one of her challenges this month as well. I was more than happy to accept her invitation! I hope you enjoy the layout of this sketch...get out that patterned paper and have fun!

I decided to use my Heidi Swiss Pixie image from C.C. Designs along with some Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper. She was watercolor {of course}, then popped off of the sponged focal panel using Dimensionals. I created the sentiment panel by stamping one of the phrases from Verve's Fairy Tales set, then punching it out with a Circle Punch. I also punched a larger circle mat and a small heart to complete the panel. The edges of the large background panel and the focal panel were pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. A piece of Ribbon and a few Rhinestones complete the card.

That's it for me today! I have a few projects that I have to complete for this weekend and next week, so I had best get started! LOL! Head on over to Danni's Blog, and participate in this week's Flutter By Challenge...remember to use a butterfly, fairy, or angel on your creation! Until later...
