Beate's Sketch Challenge


This is the Gate Fold Card I made for Beate's Sketch Challenge. These challenges are such fun, they provide you with a foundation for creation. As soon as I picked the paper I knew what I wanted to do. I pulled out some old stamps, CTMH and got busy. I wanted to add some pizzaz to the butterfly so grabed my Twinlking H2O's and got busy, haven't used them in awhile so must be honest, this was my third attempt at coloring in the butterfly with them. I think this one came out pretty good. Added a star, greeting and whalah finished. Only took two hours, did I say the sketches made this easy, on no I said fun and that they do.
