Here's my take on Kazan's sketch at 2S4Y. I loved the sketch and the new DT (including Sankari and Cheryl) are awesome! I loved their takes on the sketch... And as soon as I was done drooling over their beautiful cards, I decided to try my own too. ;-)
I kind of liked this card for a few reasons:
1. 2S4Y is my *favorite* sketch blog (sigh!!!...)
2. I love bling and there's loads of it on my card...
3. I used some new supplies that came in the mail yesterday ;-)
4. I added some dimension by creating layers (and I love layers)
So, here is the card from this lesser mortal ...
I have used a glitter and a plain frame in the centre; I curled, embossed and layered some Itsy Bitsy flowers to create the central focal element ;-) (big terms!!)... I also layered the butterflies to create a 'fluttering' effect.. Finished off with some 3D outliners, stones and micro beads.
Oh, by the way, I also dry embossed the edges of the beige card stock (not visible in the pic)...
Here's a closeup of the flower:
