H2H58 A Heart2Heart Challenge

The challenge this week at Heart2Heart is a sketch. Yay!!! I have to admit I didn’t just come up with this idea. I bought a few new scrapbooking magazines and while flipping through my Scrapbook & Cards Today. I saw a card that worked perfectly for this sketch.

First on a piece of scrap cardstock I drew half of a butterfly. I glued it to a folded card with removable adhesive and cut out around then flipped it and cut out the other half. With a pencil I drew a horizontal and vertical line so I could see where the piece of paper would meet.

Using scraps from the Sweetheart Level 2 paper pack I glued a difference pattern on each corner and trimmed off the excess. I created the body out of black cardstock and sanded all the edges.

Finally I added the flowers to a punch out scalloped circle from Tulip cardstock and placed a large circle sparkle to the middle. I stamped my sentiment on the pink side of a B&T Duos and matted it to black cardstock. A few more blings and VOILA!!! My card!
