Freshly Made Sketches: So Sorry

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by the amazing Jennifer Timko.


This is one of those cards that ended in an entirely different direction from which it began. I started looking through my stash for a big bold sentiment, and ended up with soft and lovely butterfly!

FMS So Sorry2

When I saw the butterfly in my not-yet-used stash, I knew immediately that it was right for this sketch. I sponged a variety of soft colors on a square of cardstock and then cut the butterfly. Most of my cards end up at my church, and they are always in need of sympathy cards, so the simple sentiment seemed like the perfect touch.

I hope to see you playing along this week - there is so much room for creativity and I'm looking forward to seeing the variety of cards!

You can easily predict my response to your stunning butterfly: swooning! Major swooning. Going back to gaze and admire for a while longer...

Love your NBUS butterfly!! I don't have many, but this one is so pretty! And I love the CAS look of your card. The black sentiment and scalloped edge really draw the eye right in to your design. Lovely card. Bev
