Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 203

Many thanks to the Operators over at Stamping 411 for selecting this card for their Stampers Showcase this week!

This is my entry for this weeks' Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge.  It's not exactly what I was going for -- I really wanted to do the double embossing technique from this months' Stampin' Success, but I couldn't get the colors right.  It came out too dark, as well.  However, I love the sketch that the Operator's came up with this week!  

The joy of this card is that it also fulfills the requirements for the Splitcoast Stamper's Creative Crew color challenge, using the Elegant Soiree dsp.

The background is color embossed with Chocolate Chip on a sheet from the Elegant Soiree dsp.  The butterfly from Strength & Hope is stamped in Baja Breeze, then clear embossed to make it stand out more.

Stamps:  Strength & Hope

Paper:  Early Espresso, Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Elegant Soiree dsp

Ink:  Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip

Accessories:  Big Shot, Finial Press Textured Impressions folder, Scallop border punches, Tiny Tags punch, Ticket-Corner punch, Basic Pearls, clear ep, Trinket Key, Early Espresso 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Baja Breeze seam binding, Early Espresso 3/8 taffeta ribbon, sponges, Dimensionals
