Sketchy Thursdays - Second Chance Challenge Card

I've recently joined a new Flickr group and started following a blog for Sketchy Thursdays. Here is my card creation for the Second Chance Challenge Card sketch.

My version of this pretty sketch:

Products used:
  • Black cardstock
  • Lt-Blue cardstock
  • Blue Swiss-Dott cardstock
  • Pink Paislee, Vintage Moon Collection, Moon Glade pattered paper
  • Quartet Cork Craft Sheets
  • Starform Stickers - small silver butterflies
  • Zig Calligraphy Pen - Black
  • 32 Gauge silver wire

Original Sketch:


  1. Gorgeous card! Love the color combo!

  2. I looks like, by reading your supplies list, that the butterfly and trim is cork and that you did the sentiment calligraphy yourself? OMG... AWESOME!! Simply stunning work!

  3. seriously, YUMMY. this card is a stunner!

  4. Thank you all for your comments!

    Yes, the butterfly and trim is cork - a fun product to add in. Although, hand cutting the butterfly from a template (BTW - the template was a negative cut from a Circut - Indie Art cartridge for those that want to know) was a little hard. :D

    The sentiment is hand written -- sort of, I projected the sentiment on the paper and "traced over the words. My handwriting is not very good -- but I'm a tracing master!

  5. I think you were right about us being on the same channel! ;) Great card. Thanks for the wonderful comment on my blog!
