FMS Sketch #28

A couple of great things about Wednesday, we closer to the weekend and we get a new sketch to play with at Freshly Made Sketches!  Here is the sketch for this week’s challenge-
Feel free to rotate the sketch or use different shapes in place of those shown.  I have chosen to rotate the sketch for my card, and added corduroy brads in place of the rectangle strips.  All supplies by Close To My Heart-

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Retired Wings Level 2 Paper Packet
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
D1477 Universal Backgrounds
D1475 Card Chatter-Birthday
D1452 Find Your Style
Z1393 Black Mini-Medley Accents
Z2153 Sweet Leaf Ink
Z2105 Black Ink

Design Tip-I cut the butterfly and the engraved layer with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I stamped the background with the script saying and then stamped the Happy Birthday on top.  The butterfly antenna are stamped with the Butterfly stamp from the Find Your Style stamp set.  I only applied glue down the center of the butterfly, to be able to lift the wings.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:  
DRS Designs  – Butterflies
Get Hippity with Ippity -Things with Wings 
The Pink Elephant - Butterflies         

Thanks for stopping sure and join in the fun at Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week!
