Just Add Ink #59 - A Sketch

Baja Butterflies

We've got an awesome sketch this week from one of our talented DT gals, the lovely, Mae Collins. Why don't you head on over to Just Add Ink to view all the inspiration and find some time to join in with this week's challenge.

This Week's Sketch at Just Add Ink

My submission was inspired by a lovely card that Rochelle shared with Tania, Mae and I at our last get together. I've been wanting to make a card with the little butterflies sitting on the 'Thoughts and Prayers' branch ever since.

Also, I recently received some goodies in the mail from Dawn Raspas, as a thank you gift for designing in the last two rounds of UStamp with Dawn and Friends. So combined with a great sketch, a stamp set in mind, a lovely new tag die and Framed Tulips Embossing Folder (available in the upcoming Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue), I set about the task of creating this week's challenge.

Project Recipe for Baja Butterflies:
Stamp Sets: Thoughts & Prayers, Fresh Cuts, Sanded
Ink: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock: Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Two Tags' Die (gifts from USA), Chocolate Chip DSP, Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon (retired), Beautiful Wings Embosslits, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Stamping Sponges, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch

Thanks, Nancy!! This card was featured on iPICKS #123. However, I'm not thankful for THIS.
