Sending Summer Smiles


I made this card for the Sketch Challenge on SCS. This card took me forever! How come the simpler the sketch the longer it takes? The paper I used is PTI Polka Dot Parade, Summer Sunrise and Lemon Tart. The ribbon is also PTI Summer Sunrise. The butterflies are Martha Stewart Punches. I also added some lace and Flourishes. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession. Thanks for looking!

I love the polka dots, and the ribbon! It's so pretty with that sketch! I think that's funny, too, when the "simple" sketches take longer.

You can see that this card took for ever to complete. The layering alone and to cut it so perfectly. It is a beautiful card!
