Go Ahead....Wish

Happy Sunday!  Sundays mean it's time for another sketch.  Please check out the PaperWorks Blog for the sketch and to play along.

One thing I have to say is that I usually don't follow a sketch to a tee.  I like to look and think outside the box a little bit.  Instead of using 3 ovals I used one ( Oval Nestabilities) and then added some pink dew drops for my other two "ovals."  I also turned the sketch on the side.  I think that sketches are a great springboard for creativity.  I like to add my twist on it usually.  I really am a rule follower except when it come to sketches.  I'd love to see your take on things.
A few details to my card.  The butterflies are by Basic Grey and Peggy has them on sale HERE.  I embossed them with brown embossing powder onto vellum card stock.  I then used this Taffy Smooch to color in the back.  That gives it a stained glass look.  Did you know that you can apply Smooch right to your stamp and use it like ink?  I just found that out.  My sentiment is done that way.  I love the look.  The paper's are by Bo Bunny's Love Bandit Collection and I used a scrap of green DP to coordinate with it.  Please excuse my wonky stitching.  Sewing is not my best skill.

So give it a try...See what you can do with this week's sketch.
