My card for 2 sketches 4 you

So this week Kazan gave us this amazing sketch at 2 sketches 4 you ... I loved the layering and knew right away what I wanted to do with it...

For my card I chose to us all pattern papers from Prima...they are so rich and lush...just delish. My friend Anne cut me these beautiful butterflies; I added some gold pigment ink to the shape to make it shine a bit. I also used the same ink along the edges of my card. I added lots of sparkle dust glitter pen to the card as well...a thin outline along the edge of each piece of pattern paper to define it better. The trim was a bit too light, so I added some antique linen distressing ink to it and it was perfect... I used alcohol inks to tint the Heidi Swapp ghost heart that I placed over the center pattern paper to emphasize the "all my heart" words...


we had a break in the clouds, so I ran outside to get this picture of my car...wanted the gold to really shimmer... be sure to check out the weekly sketch and awesome card samples done by the design team!!!
