SKETCHY FRIDAYS NEWS

hello

and a huge happy mother's day to all!

 i have some sad news:

this week we are closing down 
"Sketchy Friday".
I am so sorry to see it go but it is a decision sonia made. She knows better and she knows the Y's.

i want to thank all of you who came to my blog from Sketchy Friday. i appreciate you taking the time to come over because you liked my project using sonia's digis. 
who knows what the future holds for sketchy friday, if any. :(

thank you sonia for giving me the opportunity to enjoy your super cute images and i wish you the best my friend.

here is a card i had made for my turn next friday but since there is no more sketchy friday i am sharing it with you today. :)

sonia has these gorgeous butterflies in her shop and i chose my favorite one for today's project BECAUSE, sonia will keep her SK DIGIS store open and sonia will continue designing, you can still enjoy her designs. that is a huge plus, lol. 
we won't loose it all :)

anyway, this is my card for you today
Fluttering by to Say Hi
3.5" x 5" tall
the butterflies were cut by hand and the jar was cut using my cricut expression.

i used vellum for the jar and my spectrum noirs for the coloring.
(since my butterflies were printed at 1 inch and 3/4 inch high, i chose to cut off the antennas to make it easier to cut by hand, but they do come with the antennas)

i also added some other butterflies inside the jar along with some glitter)
i also loved all the papers i chose for this card. 
and the stamped sentiment is adorable too and i loooove that font.
i hand cut that extra bottom piece in patterned paper. i think it added so much to the jar.

IN THE MAKING OF MY CARD
digital image:     SK DIGIS
patterned papers:     fact from basic grey (red) and traditions from carta bella (blue/yellow)
