To a Great Friend

It's Monday and time for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  Let's take a look at the great sketch Mary Jo has for us this week.

I wanted to use a set that I haven't tried out yet, so I pulled out the Sale-a-bration set Simply Wonderful.

I must admit, I struggled a little with the design of this card.  I knew what I wanted to put in the half circle, but the rest was up in the air.  I went to the fun Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper for color inspiration then just went with it!

I picked this fun pattern, love all the colors!  From there the card started to really come together.  I used a sentiment from Simply Wonderful then added more of the colors with the butterflies from Butterfly Basics.  The ribbon is from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack from this pack of goodies!  The last thing I ended up doing was adding speckles from Gorgeous Grunge on the So Saffron card base, it was looking too plain and needed a little something!  I meant to add a couple of pearls to the butterflies, but got sidetracked and happens at my house with three kids running around me!  Anyway, I hope you like the end result and that it inspires you to join along with us!  Just go to Techno Stamper for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.
