Now to details about my card. Mojo Monday's sketch challenge this week is round or square. Just for fun I decided to go with the round sketch this time. I started by cutting the gold layering panel using Cheery Lynn's mini pearl circle from the Reflections Boutique series. I die cut the card using a circle die which fit with the gold panel. I then diecut two layering circle panels, one in white and one in design paper. On the white I stamped and gold embossed butterflies. The DP panel was cut in half and layered over the white. The ribbon was cut from the gold cardstock. The background panel was cut from designer paper and stamped over with one of the RRD sneak peak stamps. The center circle was die cut from white and stamped with a RRD sneak peak flower (distress marker stamping) and sentiment and then layered on a gold die cut circle. To finish the card I diecut 4 butterflies (3 Cheery Lynn miniature butterflies) and one of Tim Holtz's mover and shakers butterfly which layered well with one of the Cheery Lynn butterflies. I used the butterflies instead of the hearts on the sketch because they went with the stamped butterflies on the background.
I am entering this card in several challenges. Hels Sunday Challenge at Ink on My Fingers has the challenge theme fields of gold. The theme at Take a Word is butterflies. Marks Finest Papers Friends of Speedy challenge is diecuts.
