Unscripted sketch time

Any excuse I can get, I will use a sketch to create a card.  That is why I love being part of the Unscripted sketch blog and the Card Positioning Systems sketch blog.
 I didn't share my Unscripted sketch card with you last week so today I am going to share last weeks and this weeks together. 
This sketch was a bit of a challenge, but it was fun to stack the cut out leaves and butterflies from the Little Yellow Bicycle papers.  Notice the pretty punched corners on the light blue paper, LOVE that look.
The leaves and the butterflies are both in pieces of the patterned papers.
And, here is this weeks card.
Arielle from the Wax Fruit Company let the team use one of her digital stamps if we wanted. I just love what she creates so I found this fun.
I opened a Word document and inserted the little birdhouse image.  I sized it to the size I wanted to use and the I printed it three times. Once on plain white cardstock, once on the brick patterned paper by My Little Shoebox and again on the text print patterned paper by My Mind's Eye.  I used portions of each of the tree print outs to paper piece my design together for my card.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
