Match the Sketch Challenges - Monday

Happy Monday Everyone!

I spent some time yesterday making a shaker card.  I love shaker cards.  I struggle with how much sequin mix to put in.  I either have too much or not enough.  I think my card this time has the right amount.  I also finished up a tag for a tag swap.  I will post pictures of them later after I know the recipient has received them.

Today I tried something a little different.  I am unsure about my card for this one.  I started with the color challenge at Color Throwdown color challenge.

The challenge came for me when I decided to pair it with the sketch challenge at Match the Sketch Challenges.  

I began by stamping the screen background from Summer Silhouettes using black ink to make my larger panel.  Once I had my panel created, I started pulling the other elements.  I began with a piece of Brights designer series paper stack.  I chose to use the striped one.  After I added it to my black and white panel I needed something else.  I decided to use a butterfly.  I pulled out my Timeless Textures and stamped a piece of Pool Party.  I punched out the butterfly using the elegant butterfly punch.  I then needed to use the orange so I stamped a piece of Tangelo Twist with another stamp from the Timeless Textures stamp set.  I then used the Bitty Butterfly punch to punch it out.  I layered the 2 butterflies using a glue dot.  I then added it to the striped paper with a dimensional.  To finish it off I used a strip of Real Red.  I originally planed to mount it on a piece of white, but it was lost.  I then decided to use black and everything popped so I went with that.  I mounted to panel onto a white card base and my card was finished.  Here is my completed card.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I am hoping to work on a hand sanitizer order that I need to get finished and delivered.  I will be busy today!  Have a Marvelous Monday!
