Golden Anniversary in a Sketch

Hi Everyone!
Happy Tuesday to you all!  Today is a new sketch day at Seize the Sketch.

I hope you can join us this week as we share our creations, using this sketch, by me!~

I was inspired by this photo at Fusion Card Challenge (isn't it a beauty?!)~

I started by heat embossing my butterfly on vellum with gold ep and die cutting it out.  I made my die-cut trellis oval using a Spellbinders lattice die.  I rimmed the oval with gold just as the plates are in the inspiration photo. 
I used an Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheet for my foliage die cut, which is actually cut using the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps tree branch die from the Love Birds Die Set.  3 white flowers with tiny yellow gold bling centers embellish the foliage.
I finished off my card with a sentiment stamped and die cut out with another Spellbinders die.

There is so much more amazing inspiration on the Seize the Sketch blog; why not check it out and then play along with us!

A peek at our summer vacation~


Have a Blessed Day!
