Sketch for You To Try - Kind Thanks


The card for today is a thank you card that I created using Jen's Sketch for You to Try, the colors I used are pastels which I don't normally use when making cards but I guess its a nice change. I used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Polka Dot Punches, matching Delicate Dots designer paper and Certainly Celery twill ribbon. The butterfly is from the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly and was added after the whole card was together because my DD said it looked plain and needed something. I'm not sure the butterfly was what it needed but it did give some dimension. Everything on the card is SU other than the oval that was cut out using my Nestabilities die.
Supplies: Polka Dot Punches, Flight of the Butterfly, Thank You Kindly, Delicate Dots DSP, Twill ribbon, Nesties, Heart punch, Top Note die, Pop dots. Colors: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Whisper White.

I think the butterfly is a fabulous addition. Very pretty. I don't usually go for the pastels either but I think I will have to try it.

I don't tend to do pastels, but this is beautiful. I LOVE the "stitching" and the patterned paper and really everything about it. Great job sis!
