You Make Me Smile...

The lovely Jen del Muro is back with her wonderful Sketch For You To Try Challenge, but I didn't realize it until this weekend. So, I'm playing catch up and thought I'd pair her cool sketch with this week's Color Throwdown. I wasn't sure about the colors at first, but after finishing my card, I am now in love with this color combo (Blush Blossom, Sage Shadow, Riding Hood Red).
For this card, I was inspired by Jen's sample card and chose to make use of some pretty embossed butterflies. After die cutting and punching out all of my elements, I assembled the card and included a nice grosgrain ribbon. Liquid Pearls added some "body" to my butterflies, and I was left with a whimsical card to make someone {smile}!
