Card sketch #54 - Blue

Here's my latest sketch!

You know those designer papers that you get free in the Stamper's Sampler magazine? Well, I detached this one a while ago and just now found it again to use! The blue and yellow looked really good together and gave me an idea on how to go about designing this layout!

I started with a white card stock base of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The blue cardstock is ran through the new cuttlebug embossing folder called distressed stripes. The free designer paper is cut down to two 1 3/4 x 2 3/8 rectangels and layered with white cs. The top panel measures 1 1/2 x 3 and is also layered with white, and popped up with dimensionals. The two butterflies are colored with prisma color pencils and blended with OMS, then cut out and popped up with foam tape. The blue flowers were added in the top left corner with a yellow brad that matched the whole theme.
