Inspired by...Sharon D. *Day 3*

Ya gotta love this card by Sharon:

And here's my take.  I kept with the monochromatic look, switching out a butterfly for the flower and green and blue for the colors:

I began by stamping Penny Black Paisley Outline using Deep Lagoon Colorbox Chalk ink onto Penny Black Mix and Match cardstock.  The sentiment, Penny Black 4176H Friendship, was stamped onto the same color of cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The butterfly was cut using Spellbinders Butterflies 2 die cut from Tiara White cardstock and was then colored by pressing the Deep Lagoon ink pad directly onto the paper.  The pearls began white and were colored with a Copic Marker to match the strips of brown cardstock that create the small border around the sentiment.

And today we've got a little photo tutorial on the Memento's blog.  Here's a peek:

Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow with our last lovely card by Sharon!
