One of A Kind (MMSC2)...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

It's another Tuesday, which means another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! I wanted to use some Always Artichoke paper (I have challenged myself to use every one of my inks and papers at least once before the end of the year.) Here is my version of this week's sketch. I must be on a Distressed Ink kick, because I couldn't resist breaking them out again for this card. I wanted to soften the look of the butterflies a little to make the gold butterfly stand out more, so I over-stamped with a background stamp.

Natural beauty.. mint, gold and pearls, gorgeous, and the tag too! I love distress inks as well, they are so versatile, no wonder I'm just naturally attracted to this color... *grin*
