Two Challenges in One


Hello!  Today I made a card that covers 2 challenges... kind of a 2 for 1.  CAS(E) this Sketch is  pairing up with Fusion this week for a joint challenge ....use the sketch (good for both challenges) or only use the picture (Fusion challenge only).  I decided to combine the sketch and photo inspiration and pulled out the butterfly, gold, shiny, and thread (twine ) elements to use with the sketch.  I used a pattern paper as the background and wrapped the ivory strip (modified the shape a bit) with Gold Metallic thread and added 3 gold dots (sequins) and gold embossed sentiment. The butterfly die is very delicate....have not used often but like it for this card.
