Flutter By Wednesday #224 - a Sketch

Time for your next Flutter By Wednesday challenge. Your challenge this week is this sketch by Kathy. Please make your card based on Kathy's sketch and include a butterfly or fairy. Then link it up to the Flutter By Wednesday blog. It's that simple:) Check out the cards made by the design team, too - they're fabulous!
I was sure I wasn't going to have a card for today, but I was able to get it made Monday evening while I was "playing hooky" from working on the house. LOL! I started by cutting the white oval. I sponged it with Brocade Blue and Eggplant Envy inks from Stampin' Up. I stamped the dandelions (from Gina K's Many Wishes set), embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, sanded it down a bit, and then misted it with my homemade shimmery mist. I matted with black and Eggplant Envy and mounted it on foam squares. I stamped the butterfly (from Gina K's Whimsical Spring) and colored with a couple Copic markers and used the shimmery mist on it. The patterned paper is from Recollections. The black strip across the center was punched with a Stampin' Up punch. I embossed the eggplant strip with a Cuttlebug border folder. The sentiment is from Gina K, also - from Whimsical Wishes.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
