CAS Colours & Sketches #156

The first 2016 sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches begins today. Patricia designed this sketch to honor Leslie of The Crooked Stamper who sadly passed away on Christmas Day.

And this is my birthday interpretation of it:

I decided to cut the oval shape from a strip of white card which I popped up onto pads before adhering to a precious last piece of mint macaron card. This also made the top and bottom stripes.

I stamped, coloured and handcut the butterfly before popping it up on pads and attaching it in place of the circle. A trio of sprinkle enamel dots and I was done.

Stamps: Uniko, English Country Garden, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Spellbinders, petite ovals large
Card: SU, mint macarom
Embellishments: Doodlebug Sprinkles, cupcake asst.

How will you use the sketch? Check out the rest of the DT creations - here - for more inspiration.

Thanks for your visit today, I really appreciate you taking the time.  and keep crafting!

  1. The butterfly is a piece of art - and a pain to cut out! I adore how you have some of the enamel dots only partially showing, that's a brilliant idea. Liz x

  2. Like your fussy cutting! Great colours x

  3. I rarely fussy cut so am in awe of those that do! And those enamel dots add a real sense of fun and pop. Caro x

  4. Wonderful card, Jane! Love the little pink dots; great touch!

  5. I love the butterfly! Having a few of the enamel dots peek out from behind the oval and the butterfly is a fun touch. Nice job all around! :)

  6. Oh no! Can't believe I missed out commenting on last week's cards! So sorry. Thie butterfly is very pretty and I like the balance the enamel dots give. Great take on the sketch
