Here is another image from Inky Impressions. I love the images that are sitting, but am not fond of the Magnolia stamps. I am so glad that others are starting to make images sitting. This one is called Angelica's Daydream.

I pictured her daydreaming about butterflies in a nice quiet garden. I think this butterfly kind of gets lost in the flowers a little bit, but I just had to add it because it is so pretty and I wanted 3 of them on the front. You know, the uneven numbers rule, lol
I am not sure if you can tell, but I adhered the circle layers and image with dimensionals. I did not want the image to get lost among the dimension of the flowers. So glad I colored her a bit brighter to help out with this.
The paper and flowers are from Prima. I am not sure where I purchased these butterflies. I wish I could remember because I am almost out of them and they are so very pretty.

I used the Inky Impressions Challenge sketch for this card. As you know, I don't usually do sketches. I think this is the first time. I always thought I should since it would be easier than designing a card myself. BUT....I found this quite hard to do. After it was finished I was glad I tried it.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Inky Impressions: Sketch
CCEE: Flowers
Craft Us Crazy: Something new and favorite embellie ( I just got this image in the mail within the past 2 weeks and flowers are my favorite embellie as well as butterflies)
Landscaping Challenge: Polka dots (no more than 3 other challenges)
Have a super weekend everyone!
