THIS is the sketch challenge!

The LAST post was titled Sketch Challenge, I know, and then I got off track.....imagine THAT!!

THIS is Sharon Johnson's sketch challenge!! She has a fantastic blog No Time to Stamp? and has quick and easy card ideas that I "borrow" from time to time when I need a quick, easy and bee-yoo-ti-ful!! card!

She has a sketch challenge every week, so I thought this week I would try it out, since they are quite fast, for some......not so much me....but still wonderful to try!!

I think that every card takes a bit of time the first time you do it, but if you are mass producing, it goes so much easier as you go, until you get bored of course!!

For this card I used my new SEI paper "Chocolate Jolie", absolutely beautiful paper with some foil sheets, sparkly butterflies and gorgeous chocolates! I bought it at Scrappin' Great Deals.

I stamped the flower from Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms stamp set and then used my Cuttlebug flower die to cut out the little flower and then stamped another bloom on it from the same stamp set. I popped it up with a dimensional onto the first flower and added a little bling to the center!!

The little "thing" on the flower is actually a butterfly that I stamped, cut out and then popped it up on top. When I look at it here, it kind of looks like a zit.....but it really is a butterfly!!

Check out Sharon's sketch challenge for a quick, easy and fun card!!
