Retro Sketch 14



This week's Retro Sketch is fabulous for a CAS card.  I took the sketch very literally - no need to ask me if I want to use a butterfly on a card LOL!  Bonus: it qualifies for this week's  Crazy for Challenges.

Found a great Recollections paper pack at Michael's and this paper came from it.  A pink and green color combo in any hue makes me happy so this card was great fun to work on :)

Just love the script of this Stampin' Up sentiment and it was the perfect fit for this card.  Kept wanting to add something to either the top left or top right corners and finally settled on rounding the right corner.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Stamps: Best Yet (Stampin' Up)

Delicate and pretty. I like all the white space and an easy peasy sketch too.

'Tis the season of butterflies, that's for sure :) We had a sunny morning, but then the rain and grey came back :( Ah, those corrugated flowers on my card last night are actual corrugated flowers! I find the SB sleeves get squished in the big shot!
