Bittersweet Verve Sketch...

This card is for the sketch challenge over at the Verve Blog to celebrate the upcoming March release... so excited!

I used my new Bittersweet papers from Basic Grey that I got the other day (I really don't need any more designer paper!!).

The flower is from Verve's Abundant Blessings set. I stamped the medium sized flower on the pale pink paper and the small flower on the darker pink both using Chocolate Chip ink . I cut both out and embossed with clear.

The frame is from Nestabilities Label 1 set and I added some paper piercing. The sentiment is from Fluttering By and I punched it out with a word window punch. I added a shadow layer with a darker red. The butterflies are from Petals and Stems and stamped with Choc Chip ink on pink and brown paper from the Bittersweet pack.

I added a pearl to the centre of the flower and glitter to the centre of the butterflies. I also added liquid pearls to the scallops along the bottom edge of the paper (I used a Stampin Up scallop edge punch for this edge). The ribbon is pink organza.

Thanks for stopping by!
