See the Butterfly in the Window!

When I went to bed last night, I decided that no matter the sketch on 365 Cards, I would incorporate a square shape with the center cut open to make a window opening. Well, was I surprised to see today's sketch and it lent itself to my goal! This is the sketch I'm talking about for Sunday, August 30, 2009 Day 183 - Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards.

And this is my take with the butterfly in my window.

I started to use a monochromatic scheme but decided that would be boring for this card so I added the pop of core'dinations teal CS. Sanded the butterfly to reveal the lighter teal. I used SU! DS Parisian Breeze speciality CS. And - TA-DA - I used SU! soft suede CS from the new demonstrator kit I rec'd yesterday! (I take orders anytime you want, tee-hee!)
For bling I used liquid pearls, a gift from my DD, Kim.

Off to do some more painting. Yuck, be glad when I quit coming up with ideas to refurbish!
Turn your face to the sunshine and enjoy your day! SAM
