Card Sketch A Day; Hello There

I have one of the featured cards on Card Sketch a Day blog today. Sometimes inspiration strikes you when you least expect it. I was given this sketch and I thought AND THOUGHT about it...and then the idea brick hit me (in the ER of ALL places a few weeks ago, no, not for me!)...with a HUGE thud... and off I was creating...
I decided to use Tilda from Magnolia for this sketch...and I decided to go with a spring time theme, because, this time of year, we are ready for some warm weather! I used blue and green (springy colors) and added some butterflies to give this a nice spring time feeling. I used some pop-dots to give Tilda and the Butterflies some dimension. I also added some stickles to both to give it a little "bling" factor. The flowery paper from DCWV really lent the springy edge I was looking for. Hope you like her and as usual...the recipe is below, enjoy!



Recipe:
  • Stamps: Tilda from Magnolia, Butterflies from Doodlebug Teenage Girl, Sentiment from Hero Arts
  • Ink: Tim Holtz
  • Paper: DCWV Nana's Nurservy
  • Other: Stickles, Colored Pencils, Pop Dots
