On to the sketch for the week.........

And here is my take................

Okay, okay so I didn't make the little pendant thingy's. I tried but it was not flowin' the way I thought it should. So I used my all time comfort shape ... the butterfly of course. I positioned the wings so they would mimic the triangle/pendant shape. Sometimes you have to think out side of the box. I stamped the lace border from my new favorite technique tuesday lace border stamp. I used a "thank you" sticker from SRM stickers. I cut the flower off of another sticker image and layered it just under the sentiment.

So that's it. You need to head on over to Sherri's blog to continue the hop. Have fun hoppin' and have a great day!!
Oh and by the way my secret word is: SCRAPN'ART

  19. love the butterflies and a great idea about layering the stamps

  20. I adore butterflies, too. They truly are a comfort shape. Just the story of the butterfly.."new beginnings" is a comfort to my heart. Great thing about sketches is they are suggestions. All artists get to decide how they see it. Your card is beautiful. Thanks for being a part of this blog hop and sharing your creative side with us.
