...On The 3rd Day of Sketches

This is my sample for the 12 Days of Sketches-Sketch 3 at The Greeting Farm Blog. I used "Flutter Anya" along with some of my Bloom & Grow patterned papers from My Mind's Eye. I matched up the image with a sentiment from Verve's set "Artful Elegance". I watercolored the image, cut it out, then attached it to the focal panel with Dimensionals. I pierced the flower patterned paper layer with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then added a piece of Tangerine Tango Striped Ribbon around the striped and flower panels. I used a Ghost Flower from Heidi Swapp to create the sentiment panel along with a Circle and Butterfly Punch. I gave her wings some *sparkle* by adding some Stickles to complete the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a sample for Sketch Four and my Tuesday Sketch Challenge! Until then...
