STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #3

Hi everyone. Here we are with our first bi-weekly challenge for 2014 at STAMPlorations.

Each fortnight, Shery provides us will a cool sketch to work with. Don't forget we also have our monthly challenge that you can join in on as well. Perhaps you would like to combine this sketch with the monthly theme of 'Stamps and Feathers' to enter into both challenges?

Here is a great reason to join in all our challenges for the month -

Each month, we host 3 challenges: 1 monthly challenge that starts on the 1st Friday and 2 bi-weekly sketch challenges that start on the 1st and 3rd Monday. Those who participate in all 3 challenges for the month will be in the running to receive a prize package from our sister shop, All About Scrapping. We'll randomly pick one winner and announce who that is the following month before the next monthly challenge starts. Remember, you must participate in all 3 challenges that month for a chance to win a prize.

Here is the sketch -

Here is my DT card -

The main emphasis on my card today is the amazing digital papers that you can purchase from the STAMPlorations Etsy Shop. These ones are called Splash of Grunge. I have printed off two colours - one for the base of my card and one for the butterflies. 

I have cut out panels of Whisper White cardstock and embossed them with my Square Lattice Folder. I then sponged around the edges with Wisteria Wonder ink.

The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings embosslit (SU).

The sentiment is from the gorgeous STAMPlorations set called Trendy Feathers. This set is VERY versatile!

I even used a bit of the cut-off from the digital paper and an extra butterfly to decorate the inside of my card.

All you need to do now is to pop on over to the STAMPlorations challenge blog and check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of the DT. 

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks so much for looking xx
