I went to the Impress website to order their Spring Words set. I have some of their other word sets and really like the mix. While I was browsing, I noticed this Birch Press butterfly - and then I grabbed an embossing folder that worked with it all! I didn't actually plan to use it specifically for this sketch, but I love how it came together!
I pulled out some of my favorite colors to do the three strips. Then I used the yellow and orange on the butterfly - he has a sparkly white body but that doesn't show up well in my pictures. I liked the embossing folder with the butterfly because it has a fun and chunky look just like the butterfly. I kept the background white for a fresh look.
This will be one of my weekly cards to my mother-in-law. She prefers cute or funny cards but I think this is cheerful enough, it will still be a bright spot in her mailbox!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshy Made Sketches.
