Utah Diva's Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday! Gotta love the weekend, huh? I have a wonderful day planned today...lots of crafting! I didn't get much done yesterday as I ended up helping out at Kyler's school for most of the day. God's plans are not mine so I was exactly where He wanted me.

Now, you know today is Utah Diva's Sketch Challenge day and the fun part is that today's sketch challenge has a bonus challenge too which is to use your least favorite colors. Yeah, that is easy yet hard at the same time. I like just about every color but there are definitely some I don't use as often such as orange. This isn't really even "orange" it is called Pumpkin Pie and is a great color but not something I would use this time of the year.

I chose some paper from the Sweet Pea designer series paper pack for this card. I figured since I had to use a color I didn't like I would use paper and accents I did like. I went ahead and used my new Embosslits Beautiful Wings die which, to me, makes it seem as if the butterfly is getting closer to you and then flitting away again.

So, go check out the sketch HERE and make a card of your own...it is a great sketch!

Wanna hear something neat about our future UDI sketch challenges? We are going to do them blog hop style to make it easier for you guys to see them all! Yep, that is right...you can start here, see all the wonderful cards, check out the sketch, and then make your own card! I hope you'll come along for the hop starting next week!
