JAI 335 sketch challenge - butterfly birthday

If you like a good sketch, you'll love this week's new challenge at Just Add Ink. Tina's has given us this simple sketch with endless possibilities.

I rotated the sketch to make my card.

This was was really quick to make, & to me is all about the stunning, crisp, navy & white print paper from the Floral Boutique paper pack. It needed very little embellishment, so I kept the sketch elements simple, using the silver foil butterfly to provide it's usual star power. The birthday sentiment (Birthday Banners stamp set) finishes it off in style (& is one of my fave typefaces too).

And of course you need a close up of the butterfly, because it's silver & pretty ;)

 I kept it simple inside too, with more paper & a small butterfly. I couldn't decide on a sentiment so left it blank for now.

Well, that's it from me today. Do you love navy & white as much as I do?
Here's a final pic showing for you to pin for later inspiration & remember to check out the supply list below to see everything I used & click through to my store if you must have that paper too.

Now, pop over to the Just Add Ink blog to see how the team used the sketch. We'd love you to play along with the challenge too.

Until next time.
Inky wishes, Di

You know it never even occurred to me to rotate it but the sketch works great this way Di. Your colour combo is very classy and adding the silver butterfly just makes it super special. See you soon. xxx

Yeah, Diane, your card is proof that sometimes simple is best. The blue white combo is lovely and accented with the silver butterfly its extra special.
