Sketch # 195

Hello Crafty Friends,
   This week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge they have a great sketch for you! Here is the sketch..
Image may contain: text
I have made two cards, one horizontal as the sketch suggests and then one vertical..
 I also used the January stamp of the month, some left over paper from the card kit dreaming big and white glitter paper with the hearts thin cuts and markers to colour the flowers. I think they need more texture on the back ground.
Which one do you like best?
What will you make with this sketch?

Thank you… now on to our hop! If you came from Pam's Blog then you are in the right place!

So for my project I chose to make the card kit G1124 called Here for you using the colours Willow and Blossom and Some kind of Wonderful B&T. The kit makes 12 cards and two patterns. Here are the two cards according to directions.....

And here are some variations that I made and I still have more paper and shimmer trim and dots to use! I added the zip strips and gold shimmer brush on this one...
 I used our markers to colour this butterfly from the stamp set B1516 your beautiful self for the next two.

 And for a more masculine card I used the retired set called Roar D1505.
