Sketch 2 - Card #5

As you can see from this card, the creative juices were really working the day this card was designed.  An embossed background (Cuttlebug), a few die cut shapes (Accucut), a touch of Pearl Ex (Jacquard) and a few pearls for the body of the butterfly make a great card in an elegant color scheme of eggplant, black and gold.  I used glossy black card stock for the scalloped square to add an extra special touch.

If you don't have matching striped paper for your project, make your own using a sponge dauber and your favorite ink pads.  Using strips of Eclipse masking paper (Judikins) makes it easy to get perfect stripes every time.

Now, let's see how your creative juices are flowing today.  Join in the challenge for this sketch (details can be found here).
