Here is this week's Sketch and my Design Team Creation:

I did rotate the sketch 90* to the left. But wow what fun did I have! Not only did I have the pleasure to work with an amazing sketch I was able to use the new released paper line by Bo Bunny called Gabrielle. I had such fun complimenting this paper with "Priscillastyles" digital image Butterfly set! I printed my image on a thin sheet of transparency and embossed with Lindy's stamp gang Queen Sheba Silver embossing powder. I tried to fill in my image with a few colors of Lindy's stamp gang Starburst stains but lacked the knowledge to make it work for me. (that's a post in-itself) Once dried I added some Ranger liquid pearl and distress stickles to get my desired look.
I chose to accent my image with embellishments from the paper collection and Pizzazz Aplenty assorted embellishments. I used the 2mm clear rhinestone flat back bling to give my butterfly a flight trail, and the smaller butterflies the 2mm dark chocolate flat back pearls. ( oh am I in love with these pearls) I adorned with some Wild Orchid craft roses and a handmade stick-pin. Here is a look at the 3-D effect the card has.

I covered the design on the paper with diamond glaze to give it a defining effect and a little added "pop". I had so much fun working with this sketch, paper, embellishment and digital elements it will be hard to send off to a friend or loved one!
