Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #17

Here is my card for Beate's challenge. As luck would have it, it also qualifies for Barb's Bingo Challenge (use In Colors and use punches).

I used the Soft Sky textured cardstock as the card base. It is a 5 x 5 square card. For the circle, I used Wintergreen designer paper. I cut it out and mounted it on Blue Bayou. I used my Creative Memories cutter to cut the circles (ssh! - it's not SU!) Then I embossed the flourished from Priceless with white embossing powder onto the circles. I cut part of the circle off afterward so it fit on the card.

The butterfly is also from Priceless. I stamped it in VersaMark and embossed it with white embossing powder as well. Then I punched it out with my new SU! scallop punch. The sentiment is from the Garden Silhouettes hostess set, also embossed with white EP on Blue Bayou cardstock. I punched it out with my small oval punch and put it in a pewter hodgepodge hardware piece, set with brads onto the strip of Wintergreen paper. I put the Blue Bayou ribbon onto the Wintergreen paper as well before adhering the whole thing to the card base. Then I attached the circle and the butterfly afterwards.

I know it's monochromatic again, but I love the look of one colour family together, and I love the Soft Sky/Blue Bayou combo!
