but i'm getting ahead of myself! i haven't even shown you heidi's fantastic sketch yet, have i? ok, here you go:
is that wonderful, or what? look at that beautiful curved line...and the three little accents that hang over it. niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. when i saw that lovely curve i immediately knew i wanted it to be the opening of my card. and logistically this was a great idea because i had sort of weird shaped pieces left of this fun passport-y making memories paper from my studio calico kit. but then, how...and where...would i attach the fab maya road leather flowers i wanted to use in the three spaces? well obviously i needed an element to overhang, and somehow a butterfly seemed like a good idea. i traced a tattered angels chipboard one onto a scrap of patterned paper, et voila: a flight of fancy!
there are LOADS more gorgeous sketch cards from the design team over at CAARDVARKS, not to mention links to all of the amazing readers' cards from every sketch this week. if you have a few minutes, or need a bit of inspiration, i seriously do not believe there's a better place to find card-making mojo in the whole wide world!!! ENJOY!
