Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 254

Good morning! It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Want to play along? Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC254 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I got a little crazy with texture for this card -

I used some Smooth White, Berrylicious and Sno Cone card stock and glued the negative of the Polka Dot Cover-Up and created an ombre background. I added a little strip of card stock across the top to create the split in the sketch. I also used some embossing paste (which I colored a bit with a Sno Cone ink refill) and created the stenciled background underneath the butterfly.

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more for you to see this week - please stop over and see:
