Skipping Stones Sketch 113

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Today we start another fabulous sketch challenge at Skipping Stones Design.  This month's sketches were designed by Pamela Young. I used Garden Stamp Kiss and Always Here to create my card:

Beautiful Birthday

Using a palette of grays, green blue and rust, I started by stamping the script image from Garden Stamp Kiss multiple times on the background of the large circle.  Next, I stamped the large butterfly from Always Here onto light gray cardstock and I cut out the image and adhered it to the circle.  

I used dark gray buttons in place of the circle accents on the sketch and the sentiment (also from Always Here) went in the top right corner. 

One more look at the entire card. 

Here is a look at one the sets I used today:
