Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #16

Hi I'm back from Queensland, it was beautiful. Also Yesterday was Reginals in Sydney was great, I had wonderful time and also learnt a thing or two... Now on to the card, I missed Makeeska challenge last week so I have managed to do it this week. Check out makeesha's and the DT creations HERE. This week is a sketch challenge

For this challenge I have used a new toy from the New Summer Mini, Butterfly punch. No more cutting out butterflies. The punch co-ordinates with the flight of the butterfly stamp set and also a new stamp set Butterfly prints which I have used here.

Card Recipe:
SU Cardstock: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White.
SU Stamps: Butterfly prints and sentiment is from Great Friends stamp set.
SU Inks: Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze.
SU Other: Baja Breeze Double Stitched Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Eyelet border punch, Ski Slope DSP (only available till end of the month) Butterfly Punch.
I have Rock and Roll the butterflies. Ink up the butterfly in baja breeze and then roll around the edges in Chocolate Chip. Always use lighter colour first and then apply the darker last.
