STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #26

Hi Everyone - 

sorry for the late posting, but here is our new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations - don't worry  you'll have two weeks to link up:

Simple and pretty!

Here is the card I made for it:

I used  Trendy Butterflies and Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds to make the side strip, but before I stamped the butterflies I directly applied metallic ink and chalk in to the paper to get abase coloring for the strip. I like the shimmer of it. For the sentiment I went with Bloom Sketches .
Here is a closeup, where you can see that shimmer better:

I also added tiny gems to the antennae.

So, go and visit the STAMPlorations blog - great inspiration there to find and we also have a talented guest designer for this challenge - its Maria from Bulgaria, who shares a delightful card with us.

I won't be part of the challenge team any longer at STAMPlorations, so this is my last card for it, but the good news are that I will be part of the Inspirations design team and I still be be doing bi-monthly Spotlights, so this won't be the end for me!!!!

Hope to see your creations over there!

Wondered how you got that shimmer. Now I wonder what kind of ink you used for the butterflies? Coverage looks good.
