Get Sketchy #5

Happy Friday! Time for another Get Sketchy challenge. This week's sponsor is one of my personal favorites--Paper Blooms! Leah's crocheted and felt embellishments are all handmade and the perfect finishing touch for any project. This week's winner will receive a gorgeous assortment from the Paper Blooms Etsy shop!



For my card, I chose to use 3 crocheted butterflies from Paper Blooms, and I added some pearls as accents. I paired my butterflies with one of my favorite sentiments from Verve. Plus this fun sketch allowed me to shake things up by creating a Gate Fold card.

I'd love to see you play along with us! Create a card that follows the sketch, and as a bonus (just for fun) you can add your own handmade embellies to your card. Then link up your creation on the Get Sketchy blog. I can't wait to see what you create!

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Regal Rose, Aqua Mist, white, BasicGrey dp
Ink: Rose Romance
Accessories: crocheted butterflies (Paper Blooms), pearls (Kaisercraft), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Nestabilities circles & scalloped circles, dimensionals
