Paper craft project no. 306: Sweet friend one layer card

It’s time for a new sketch challenge at the STAMPlorations blog. It’s the last sketch challenge for the year and we’re making it a long one! The linky is open until December 28 and there’s no limit to how many times you can play. Oh, and we have a couple of extra special prizes too! Julie Beech of Crafted by Jules is our guest designer. I hope you’ll come check out the projects that Julie and the STAMPlorations girls made for the sketch!

For my one layer card, I stamped one of the trendy butterflies (new set!) and masked it before stamping the artsy sunflower and smaller butterfly. The sentiment is from Sugar Rush, the December/January stamp club set. I spattered a bit of mustard seed and faded jeans Distress inks and finished the card by running the side of my Japanese watercolor brush pen to create the artsy blue border. The card is rather bright for the season — and I did it because I was getting a little tired of the gloomy days and I needed something with bright, happy colors :o)

Linking up my card to these fun challenges: (1) Crafting When We Can #83 – Clean and Simple; (2) A Little Bit Crafty – CAS; (3) Sister Act #84 – Anything Goes; and (4) Clear It Out – Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Those borders look so fun and artsy! And so do the butterflies. Beautiful! Great layered stamping as always Shery, you are the master at it. :) xxx

  9. This is certainly a bright and breezy card not that we need cheering up today around these parts, as the sun is shining if a little chilly in the shade.
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to be GD at STAMPlorations for the month of December! x
