Hello bloggers,
Thanks so very much for all the encouraging comments on the black and orange card... I felt so motivated that I thought of taking part in a sketch challenge...


So here is my take on the sketch - more shabby and less chic!!!



Supplies:
Base card stock - white and distressed with American Crafts stamp pad in aqua
Doily - punched out a circle, used Paper Mania doily stamp in pearlescent blue (Brilliance Archival) 
I distressed the stamped doily with lavender (American Crafts) which kind of ruined it!
Borders - MS punch
Butterfly - K and Co (pretty acetate butterfly)
Flowers - made by me
Leaves - leaf punch
Sentiment - Hero Arts
Ribbon and glitter - from stash


And down below is the sketch http://mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com/




I am also going to enter this card in the following challenges:
http://littlemissmuffetchallenges.blogspot.com/ - purples, blues and greens
http://blog.cuddlybuddly.com/ - vintage, distressing and flowers

Hugs and have a pleasant weekend,

Monica
