Paper craft project no. 352: You're sweet one layer card

Happy Monday! Here's a one layer card I made for the new sketch challenge over at the STAMPlorations blog. For the next couple of weeks, we're playing with this fun sketch:

I followed the sketch closely and created a one layer card. I created a circle mask from a post-it note and traced around it lightly with a pencil to use as a guide for stamping the trendy butterflies in various Memento inks. I also masked the butterflies as I stamped them. I placed the negative circle mask over the masked butterflies and sponged Distress inks (mustard seed and spiced marmalade). I stamped the newsprint in coffee archival ink and the sentiment in jet black archival ink before removing the masks. I finished the card by rounding the bottom corners.

Check out how the rest of the STAMPlorations girls interpreted the sketch here. We're also joined by 3 talented cardmakers: Suchi, Coni, and Robyn. We hope to see your take on the sketch too!

Linking my card to these fun challenges:
I'll be back in an hour with my card for the STAMPlorations April Stamp Spotlight Week blog hop! We've got lots of prizes for those who'll be hopping along :o)
