While surfing the net for new challenges to inspire me, I came across this "sketch" challenge. The idea is to design a card based on this template sketch, created by their design team.
My boyfriend Ryley is coming home from Yellowknife in just over a week. He's been away working since May!!! Needless to say, I am looking forward to his return (even though it will be just a quick visit) and was incidentally trying to think of a layout for a "Welcome Home" card. This one immediately inspired me and worked perfectly for what I wanted to achieve. Enjoy!
For this card, I wanted to try something new and different. Instead of using my Martha Stewart butterfly punches, I decided to use my beautiful Hero Arts butterfly stamps, and then cut them out individually. With the woodgrain patterned paper, I think it gave it a natural feel... but still playful with the owl!
