JAI 288 sketch challenge - butterflies are back!

Oh I do like using sketches & Narelle has created this fun one for our new Just Add Ink challenge.
I loved the stars but was in a butterfly mood so this is what I made.
Looking at the sketch & my card together, I may have taken some liberties with the scale of the elements, but I think you can definitely see the sketch. It turned out much bolder & brighter than my initial idea but I still like it. Maybe the other idea will come out another time :-)
It's pretty sparkly in real life with the glittery butterfly, bermuda bay & silver sequins, & silver foil but maybe not showing so well in the pic. Try clicking on the pic to see a bigger version. I really like the effect of the Softly Falling folder I embossed the Cherry on Top paper background with. The actual paper has falling sprinkles on it too so I thought the embossing would enhance it even more.

The team have used the sketch in all sorts of awesome ways so see them all here on the JAI blog. I hope you'll play along & link up with the challenge too.
Thanks for visiting today & I hope my card gives you ideas to try. See you next post.

Inky wishes, Di

Just lovely Di, the dotty butterfly layer is super cute, as is your whole take on the sketch. Xx

Such a vibrant and fun card Di! I love the beautiful butterflies and how you've embossed the DSP - such a fabulous idea. So lovely to see you and spend a little time crafting together on Saturday too! xx
