Lauren's Saturday Sketch Challenge

Wow! Another great sketch. I did find it more challenging this week because of school being back in the swing of things. I love working at my new job but it's just constant planning for the next day, especially since we are on the block schedule and I have kids for an hour and a half at a time. At first, it was really hard to gauge how much to have and what kinds of activities to do. I think I'm getting better.

Anyway, onto the sketch challenge. Here is this week's sketch:


I made two cards again; one that is simple and one that is not so much. I'm not sure about the card that isn't so simple. I feel like I am missing something or did something that didn't make the overall card turn out like I wanted it to. I do love the little butterflies that are all over the card. The Martha Stewart punches are great! Which card do you like better?

Close up of the itty bitty butterfly. I put four of them on the card and then the larger one on the stamped flower.

Supplies:
Basic Grey patterned paper
PTI cardstock and vellum
Nestabilities
PTI Garden of Life stamp set
Buttons
Stickles
Martha Stewart punch

Supplies:
Rhonna Farrer rub-on
Martha Stewart punch
PTI cardstock
Nestabilities

WOW! I love your simplistic card. I am always nervous to leave cards so bare, but I LOVE the look of them.

Nice job! I especially love the butterflies added on the 2nd card....the rhinestone adds a nice touch too!

These are both great. My favorite is the simple one. Just beautiful.
