I'm Always Here...

Welcome to a new month with the SSD sketch challenges! We have some fabulous guests this month and I'm so thrilled to see what these awesome ladies will come up!

Loved this sketch from our super talented Guest Sketch Artist this month, Amy Sheffer!

I was inspired by the colors and the butterfly from the photo from the Cupcake Inspiration challenge this week. They look so delish it would be so hard to eat them! ;)

I used the butterfly and sentiment from Always Here and the two background panels from Timeless Textures. Paired up Black and Cherry Cobbler for a striking effect when combined with Very Vanilla. Love these colors together!

The butterfly was colored in with a Copic marker, and I cut two butterflies out to layer and lift it off the card. Be sure to stop by the SSD Blog and join us in this sketch challenge! Prizes are given out each month so you don't want to miss it!
