Stamp Off Beautiful You Sketch

As February speeds by, Buffy, Susan and I
are back for another Stamp Off Challenge.

This week, we have a sketch challenge, which is 
something that I think all 3 of us enjoy.  It offers lots of 
freedom in terms of stamp set and color, so you can pull
out product that gets your creative juices going.
On Wednesday, I posted a card that follows this sketch,
up to a point.  That was my "warm up" card for this challenge.


I had the urge to use my Stampin' Blends, so this sketch
worked extremely well with the Beautiful You set on
page 141 (annual catalog).   I also love the Sunshine Wishes
Thinlits on page 216, because they are so uplifting.
As you can see, I enhanced the thinlit images by coloring
them a bit with the Stampin' Blends, creating some
ombre effects.  The focal image and butterflies
are mounted on some Wood Textures, because
there is nothing better to layer on!!

I now invite you to hop on over to Buffy and Susan's blogs
so that you can enjoy their creative offerings!
