SSSC113.....Thank you for your Kindness



GOOD MORNING PEEPS!!! It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week;



I had fun with this sketch, well maybe not fun but it was interesting. I made this card, the main image part, three different times. I had worked out the colors and paper to use fairly quickly but I couldn't get the main part right. I knew I wanted to use this pretty butterfly from the Stampin' Up set Thanks for Caring, isn't it pretty? Love it! I wanted to use this butterfly for the butterfly image in the sketch, but I couldn't get much further, frankly it is what I have been dealing with all week, a lack of mojo!!! I got stuck on using the rest of the same set for the circle panel, I tried two different things that ended up in the circular file! I finally just put it aside for a couple of days and then I decided to look through my stamps to see what struck me and I love these daisies in the Every Moment set, so I stamped a few onto some watercolor paper and colored them with my aqua painter and some pretty in pink and rose red ink. I cut them out and added them to my circle element and added the sentiment, which is from the Occasional Quotes stamp set. I finally liked the end results but it was very frustrating getting to this point!!!





I added some stickles to the butterfly and three basic pearls to the bottom. I tied a bow around the side piece with some basic gray taffeta ribbon.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
