Saturday Scribbles

So I made this card for Freshly Made Sketches:

I loved the sketch from the moment I saw it, but I know I'm the queen of crooked and would never be able to line up all those pieces even if I did manage to cut them straight.  A different way had to be discovered! 

Not content with one problem I then further complicated things by choosing to use the CAS Colours & Sketches combo. Just about managed to find a reasonable match for Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe, but that Wisteria Wonder - nothing in my stash even came close.

Eventually I found some cardstock from an ancient sarabooks pad that was ok for colour.  I then stamped the grid, a large butterfly in the centre square and random smaller butterflies over the rest of the card. 

I stamped a border using an acrylic block and mounted the grid card onto it. Finally I stamped one large and two small butterflies from the purple card, hand cut the large one and used a punch for the smaller ones and adhered them on top of the grid. No sentiment yet as I don't know how I will use this card.

 Oh and of course some Wink of Stella was added!

Stamps: Uniko Studio, English Country Garden Butterflies, Background Builders SQUARED
Inks: Ranger distress, tattered rose; Adirondack, eggplant; Kaleidacolor, Caribbean sea
Punch: Martha Stewart, butterfly trio
Embellishments: Wink of Stella, clear

Don't forget to come back tomorrow when I'll be revealing my new DT card for AAA Cards game 8 when we are CASing a card from Vicki Dutcher - see her blog here.
