This is a gatefold card, however that wasn't part of the sketch challenge. I just had the Cherry Cobbler cs piece already cut and folded for another project and decided this sketch worked well for a gatefold card. So to begin my finished card front measures 5.5 x 5.5 inches. I cut the Basic Black cs (2) @ 2.5 x 5.25 inches. Then I cut (2) red dots cs @ 1 5/8 x 5.25 inches. Then I used the largest of the pinked circles Nesties and cut of Cherry Cobbler. Then I cut the black and white damask with the second to largest Octogon Nestie. Then I cut the Cherry Cobbler tag and the Damask tag from the second and third smallest Nesties. Then I punched the sentiment pieces with a 2 inch scallop oval punch in Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. Stamps used are from Nature Walk and Perfect Punches. I stamped the butterfly in Cherry Cobbler and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I added some Basic Black with my marker and dotted with a couple rhinestones on the wing. Then sentiment was stamped in Basic Black and colored in with Cherry Cobbler. I added a few more rhinestones and some ribbon and called it complete!
