It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.
Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today I'm featuring the brand new products from the Butterfly Bouquet offering. The Butterfly Brilliance Collection is gorgeous and includes the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set, Brilliant Wings Dies, a limited edition Butterfly Bijou 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper. You can purchase the stamps and dies in a bundle and you can pick and choose the items you want a la carte.
