Sketch 8 Card Patterns

Once again, Michelle gave us a great sketch to work with this week! My card is done using some new Inkadinkado stamps, some really old stamp pads and gorgeous Bobunny dot cardstocks. I also used my cuttlebug birds and swirls folder to emboss the lime green cardstock.
I inked the saying stamp with black, then used an OLD ranger ink pad called ocean to stamp the bflies, I loved the mix of green and blue- I have no idea if that is how it was made, or if it seperated over time, but it's gorgeous! ( I think it's a little hard to see in the pic- and looks more like it didn't stamp well- but it's there!)
from there I used my template to cut the oval, then trimmed with scallop scissors. I added the punch needle holes, ribbon and lime green gems to the bflies that I fussy cut out then layered on to the card.
thanks for dropping by today! have a wonderful sunday!
