Thoughts and a Sketch

I {heart} SCS.

I'm pretty sure it's no secret - splitcoaststampers is my happy place. It's where friendships are made. It's where inspiration is gleaned. It's where tutorials are found. Oh, and did I mention, CHALLENGES (new ones each day of the week)! 

Each challenge has a few people who know the themes ahead of time and create cards/samples to be shared when the challenge is introduced. I was delighted when I was asked to join the Sketch Challenge design team for six months. Each Wednesday (February - July 2022) I'll share the card I made for the current week's Sketch Challenge. 

This Week's Sketch (#SC902):

I will admit I struggled with this sketch. I couldn't wrap my mind around those six stars. I thought and thought and thought some more... until I reminded myself they didn't have to be stars. I could embrace the sketch and make it my own. 

It could be six butterflies (in a similar formation)...

Not only that, I could also make my card horizontal instead of vertical.

It doesn't show well in the pictures, but I used a glitter pen to add sparkle to the butterflies.

I hope you'll check out the Sketch Challenge - HERE - and play along. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I bet these butterflies really sparkle and look gorgeous is real life. Purple is one of my favorite go to colors. Your card is amazing. Thanks for sharing!
