Finally!!! My first blog entry!!

For my very first blog entry on my very first blog (yay!!), I decided to do a sketch challenge by Deconstructing Jen. I've always admired her sketches and designs, but have never participated because I haven't had a blog to share and I haven't been good at taking photos.  My photos are still very much a work in progress, but I do appreciate your patience as I embark on this new journey.  Anyway, here is my submission for DS135 and I must say that I am THRILLED  with how it turned out! It's beautiful!

For this challenge, I decided to use the Poppies Stamp Set by There She Goes. I love their stamps and am sad to see that they are no longer around, but am happy to have some of their products. The quality is amazing!  I really love chevron print and decided it would be a perfect background for this card :)  The images are colored with Inktense pencils and after I added some buttons I decided it needed a little something extra, so I used two butterflies (also in the stamp set) and adhered them with a glue dot. There you have it! I'm really happy with how it turned out! Thanks for looking :)
