I appreciate you

The past two weeks have been almost non-stop work for me but today, today is a day off :) Yippee!

I am playing along this week with Get Sketchy. I am always reaching for the same colors so I decided to peruse the Internet and find something different. I hope you like it :)

Here is the awesome sketch we are working with

and here is my take

I started with a standard size white card base. I cut a piece of yellow pattern paper (Soup Staples collection) to 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhered it to my card base.

I created the teal piece by scribbling my teal marker (Marvy Bold) on my craft mat, picking it up with my H20 pen (lots of water) and coloring a white piece of card stock until I was happy with the result. adhere flat.

The punched (EK Success) a 2 x 4 piece of white and adhered it to my card.

The navy square was cut to 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and glued down.

I created the rosette by scoring every 1/4 inch on white card stock cut to 1 1/4 x 11.

I stamped the butterfly (Hero Arts, Butterflies) on white and colored it with a yellow marker. I fussy cut it out and attached just the body to my rosette.

I cut the teal (DCWV, Cafe Mediterranean) to 1/2 and stamped my sentiment (Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages) in versamark. I then heat embossed in white. I cut a V to make a little banner and added it to my card with foam.

Some clear rhinestones and yellow stickles finished it off.

This card is a little different for me  . . . . what do you think?
