Boldly to go
So, today I went boldly, encouraged by the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge to "be bold". For me, combining a ton of orange and yellow is pretty bold.
The sketch is Sketch Saturday sketch 232, which I pulled out for their current challenge to pick a previous sketch. (I substituted an oval for the circle but otherwise followed pretty closely.)
The butterfly (Stamps on Fire), is black embossed, and I used an out-of-the-box cut on the wings before cutting the oval. The ovals are up on pop dots.
The sentiment is from CTMH and stamped with Memento black ink.
The yellow card stock is embossed with a Sizzix folder run thru the trusty Cuttlebug, and the swirly pattern sort of has a similar feel to the print on the orange paper. A few gel dots finish the card.
