Saturday Sketch Challenge Numero Uno

Good morning! I am having difficulties with viewing my blog today, but hopefully it'll be all worked out soon!

This is the card that I made for Lauren's Saturday Sketch Challenge. I LOVED her sketch (as stated in previous post), but I made my image too big. So, I had to veer from my original plan a bit, in order for all of the pieces to fit on the card. Here's her sketch...

This is a Chichiboulie that I got from Miss Emily HERE, and I just love her! Her name is Wendy Papillon. I've had about four of these little fairies for probably a month and a half, and haven't played with them yet! That's why I was so determined to make this work! LOL

As you can see, I pierced the upper and lower rectangles, instead of using paper. I tried to use it, but it looked too cluttered. I like the way the butterflies sort of fill that void, though. They were punched with my MSL punch. The image was colored with Copics, and the wings were covered in Diamond Stickles. The ribbon is American Crafts, and the sentiment is also from Stamping Bella.

This is a close-up of the wings. You can see that the top one is cut out and elevated for some dimension.

Make sure that you check out the other SSC (Saturday Sketch Challenge) girls, too. Here are their blogs...

Now I'm off for the day! Hope to "see" you tomorrow for Bella card! THEN, the MFTeasers start on Monday! ;)
