TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge

I hope you're enjoying the Memorial Day Holiday! I've been playing in MJ's challenges weekly, even though I've had a few other posts that needed to go up today, I couldn't miss the chance to play along with this weeks sketch.

When I first looked at the sketch, I honestly had no idea what I was going to do, what do you put in those squares? Then I decided to take a few creative liberties with the sketch and made the squares butterflies, but added a third one, as I like to keep images like that in three's.

I layered the Parisian Breeze DSP onto my Chocolate Chip Panel, and flipped over a 1/2" strip to get the Polka Dots on the top. To hide the seam of the two blues, I adhered a Chocolate Damask piece of Parisian Breeze. The Flourish from Baroque Motifs is stamped using the Heavenly Holes Technique from the June TJNL. The butterflies are from Stampin' Up!'s Dreams Du Jour, stamped in Creamy Carmel, cut out and adhered with a Glue Dot to give them a bit of dimension. The Scallop behind my focal image is from the Pennant Die Cut. The sentiment from Baroque Motifs is stamped in Chocolate on Baja Breeze.

This is absolutely wonderful!!! It's so elegant and boy are you right about the threes. I left just two squares on mine and it bothered me! Love the little details, especially the paper piercing on the circle.

Wow, love the card and your new profile picture. You hair looks fabulous. When did you do this? The card is fabulous. I was ok with the three theory because the sentiment made the triangle of three in my head, lol. Great job, thanks for playing along.
