Hey y'all, happy Friday. I finally rustled up a card for today's Friday Flashback, which is in celebration of Sketch an Event. So let's check it out...
When we lived in Okinawa, I made up some baby shower invites for a friend who didn't know at the time if she was having a boy or a girl (it was a boy) and I think this is the one we went with. Even though it's green and blue she still liked it for a boy or a girl.
I also tried a Real Red version because Sarah likes her some bright, saturated colors. And that is the end of the Flashback, because I've had this stamp set for a long time and I'm absolutely sure I made more cards with it but they musta been before I got a digital camera. So y'know, ancient.
Here's the new card:
I stamped the flowers in Bermuda Bay and carefully watercolored with Cucumber Crush, trying not to blur the lines too much. And then I got the bright idea to add Dazzling Details glitter glue to the wings and I should have used Wink of Stella instead because the Dazzling Details mostly blew bubbles everywhere and I'm not sure much actual glitter got on the card front but I didn't want to redo it.
I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:
Granted I added the patterned paper on the left, and I only did three butterflies because they were too tall to do four and have room for a sentiment.
I also used the Retro Rubber color challenge:
I've had Sketch an Event since at least 2006, when it retired, and So Happy for You (the sentiment) was from 2011's Sale-a-Bration so both are quite retro ;) I'll have to see if I can work this stamp set in on some scrapbook pages or something, it's pretty cute and it's sad that I haven't used it more. Or that I don't have photographic proof that I used it more often, anyway.
Happy weekend, y'all!
