Stuck in Neutral

... colors, that is! I had a Black and White class earlier this week and really enjoyed working with the neutral colors. So for this week's UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge, I used the sketch below and altered a card that I did in the class to fit the sketch. I hope Carol is sitting down when she sees this, because I didn't flip or turn the sketch for the third week in a row! Here's the sketch.

And here is the card.

Stamps: Great Friend
Papers: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black and First Edition DSP
Inks: Black Staz-On, Crumb Cake for sponging
Accessories: Framed Tulips embossing folder, 1 3/8" square punch, basic pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals, corner rounder punch

Here's a detail of the butterfly. I folded it down the center and only popped up one side with Stampin' Dimensionals to give the wings a little lift.

If you are following the sketch challenge, the next stop is Elizabeth's blog. If you run into any problems along the way, you can always head back to the UDI blog to see the links.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

  6. This is just gorgeous! I agree with what everyone else said and I love how you did the corners on the text pieces!

  7. Beautiful! What a smart lady to turn the Tulip folder sideways. I don't know why I never think of things like that. Great card!
