This is a card I made for the Color Throwdown challenge #98 and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #79. I turned the sketch on it's side to accommodate my elements.  I used the background stamp by Unity and this sentiment stamp that I love.  The paper is from Cosmo Cricket and GCD.  Used brads by SEI--the brown one had the heart on it and the other two have some rub-ons from Basic Grey.  Really happy with how this turned out--a little out of my comfort zone since no designer paper was used--SHOCK!!!

This is the card I made for "A Sketch for You to Try".  Of course I love it since it is BLUE and black!!   I used the butterfly stamp from Unity that I LOVE!!!  Then a Tim Holtz embossing folder---LOVE those too!  Used a Creative Memories circle punch for the sentiment. Used a Fiskars border punch on the black--love those punches!!!.  Used some ribbon from my craft stash and the paper is from GCD and Paper Studio.  Love how the swirls on the background paper go with the swirls on the butterfly---YEAH!!!
