CAS Colours & Sketches #175

Today's sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches brings the May challenges to a close. And it's a wonderful sketch designed by Caro.
Here's my card:

I was pondering for a little while about how to get the different sizes from the sketch onto my card and decided to try out some butterflies. I punched and die cut a set in white card just to practise the placement and see if the sizes would work. I intended to repeat this in patterned paper, but liked the clean simple look of the white so went with this instead.

I finished off my card with a few gems and an appropriate sentiment and, of course, that one rounded corner.

Stamp: Stamplorations, Art Marks
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Marianne, butterfly
Punches: Martha Stewart, triple butterfly, butterfly; SU, butterfly
Embellishments: Papermania, adhesive stone iridescent

How will you interpret the sketch? Be inspired by the DT cards at CC&S and then get busy.

Thanks for your time today, I appreciate your visit to my blog.  And keep crafting!
