STAMPlorations Bi-weekly Sketch challenge #17

Hi friends! Its time for a new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations, Bi-weekly Sketch Challenge #17. This challenge ends on August 15st and the winners would be announced on August 17th. We have a very talented Guest Designer Kim M joining us for this challenge. She makes awesome cards with great ideas and design :) You can check out more of her creations at her blog Art keeps me sane

Let's get to the sketch and my card...
To make this card, I stamped focal piece using the brush stroke stamp in Holiday Artsy set and then I created the butterfly Using Vignette - Retro Mod shapes. I then hand drew the black and silver squares to match the sketch and finally stamped the sentiment using Subway Art sentiment builder - Dare. I also inked the card base in light pink and water stamped the images from Holiday Artsy set. I am entering this card to a few challenges - One layer simplicity Challenge #8 - Shades of summerSimon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!

Be sure to check out STAMPlorations blog for some amazing inspiration by our lovely team and don't forget to play along.
