JAI 260 sketch challenge - with a touch of gold

If you love a good sketch as much as I do then you'll love this week's new challenge at Just Add Ink. The sketch Narelle has created is full of possibilities. Even better, most of the team are off to Stampin' Up! convention next week so this challenge runs for two weeks. That means more time for you to try it. Lookie!
Here's what I made with it - a very clean & simple creation with a touch of gold for a lovely friend's birthday. I really hope she likes it....& doesn't check my blog before I see her today - shhhh!
I used the butterfly as my circle element from the sketch, but also added a circle behind it to ground it to the card. I love that the Birthday Bash DSP has little gold foil elements in it which add a little more subtle bling. You can perhaps see the gold shimmer a little better in this pic.
My only uncertainty with the card was that I didn't want a sentiment to detract from that beautiful gold butterfly so I didn't add one. It felt weird to leave it off, but hopefully the fun gold embossed sentiment from Balloon Bash I added inside made up for any absence on the front. I don't know why this looks pink in the pic - maybe the early morning pic or bad photo editing did it ;-)
So what do you think? Did I do justice to the sketch challenge? Leave me a comment to let me know where/whether you'd add a sentiment. Do also check out all the lovely creations by all the design team & remember we'd love you to try this sketch challenge yourself.
Thanks for visiting today. Hope to see you back here soon.
Inky wishes, Di

Such a pretty card! That gorgeous confetti paper is the perfect complement to the lovely gold butterfly. The gold-embossed sentiment looks awesome! See you at Convention, lovely! xx

Oh look at all this fabulousness! I really adore your gold butterfly and gold sentiment inside your card - so classy!

So funny, I didn't even realise there was no sentiment until I read it in your blog. Was so taken with the butterfly and the 'sprinkles' paper I didn't notice!! Glorious card and love the gold sentiment on the inside. Perfect!
