Creative Sketches Challenge Card

For this week's challenge we used the colors Daffodil Delight, Bashful Blue and Elegant Eggplant, and the card below is what I came up with.  This card is actually cased from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog and I used the set, Strength & Hope.  Stampin' Up! is donating $2.00 from each purchase of the set to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

I inked up butterfly using an Elegant Eggplant inkpad, cut it out and then spritzed it with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spirtz.  I then distressed flowers I punched out using the Boho Blossom Punch, as well as the edges on the designer paper, label and cardstock.  Added a touch of pearls and ribbon to the card, and there you have it!  Hope you have time to play along with this week!
