Just Us Girls #235 - Sketch Challenge

JUGS 235 photo JUGS235picA.jpg

It's sketch week over at Just Us Girls and Maria has created this sketch for us to work with.

My MME In Bloom paper pad was at the front of my 6 x 6 storage box so I decided to use it again as I just love it.  Down to just a few papers left, but thankfully I have a second pack waiting to be opened when this one runs out LOL!

The sentiment on the card consists of two from Verve's Take Note.  I masked off part of the top sentiment to get the "you're special" and then used another sentiment at the bottom.  Love this butterfly die from MFT and after some debate, decided to have my butterflies "in motion" (aka: at different angles instead of all vertically positioned).

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with the first appearance of our April Guest Designer Lee Anne, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Beautiful take on the sketch Marisa. I'm like you, if I love a paper pad enough, I buy at least two, to make sure I don't do without! lol xxx

Very pretty card, Marisa! The soft colors are lovely, and what a great idea to add the two sentiment flags. It really balances everything perfectly.

Love that gorgeous dp as a backdrop for those darling butterflies! Quite a few of us had butterflies on our minds, I just hope spring will finally arrive so that we might get to see some real butterflies!
