Sketch Challenge at Sunday Stamps and a Butterfly (in Gold and Blue) Card

We meet again on Sunday at our brand new challenge at Sunday Stamps  this time we have a sketch challenge:

As this time it is popular using red, white and blue colors, also I choose those colors for my card. Using The Lawn Fawn stamp set named Float my Boat,  I first stamped and embossed with white embossing powder the blue card base.

I used again my cloud template from Billie A. , (again many thanks dear Billie :) ) and sponged it with blue distress ink.

Hope I can inspired you to join our sketch challenge :)

Challenges for my card are: 

Creative Fingers Challenge #84: Anything Goes (2/3)(sdh a. p.)

Simply Paper Craft #7: Anything Goes (2/3)(sdh a. p.)

Second card I really like to use again the color combo on this challenge:

Colour Q Challenge #295:  

I love this color combo and want to try my luck again with this challenge...

How I made my card:

1. I used My Favorite Things Stencil on the Background and using Spun Sugar Distress ink I sponged the background.

2. The butterfly I have got from my Lovely friend FLO (many thanks liebe Flo for this nice and adorable butterfly cut out), and this butterfly was in white...

3. I colored the back side butterfly with Navy Blue Copic Color 

4. And the other butterfly, I put on the clear ink and gave gold embossing powder on it and embossed it, I did it three times...Love so much the result.

  31. I love the stamped background that you made for your fun nautical card! Thanks for joining us at My Sheri Crafts.

  32. I am going to be joining the Sunday Stamps challenge soon... And I just love your nautical card.. what a cute boy card and it is genius that you left it without a sentiment. You can just put one on when you are in need of a card... awesome... Sentiment could be: 'you are my lifesaver' ha!!

    Your colour Q design is just divine!! So simple and so dramatic!! the gold butterfly is the star of the show!! Again, left without a sentiment.. just awesome!!

  33. That golden butterfly - so pretty! and you nautical card is another beauty - you do those so well. Nautical just does not excite me....I stay away from it...

  34. Ooooo, a nautical card, they're my favorites!! This is brilliantly designed as I believe it's perfect for both a young boy and an old man. Must look for this stamp set!
    Great idea to gold emboss the butterfly, beautiful shine and I love its kind of metallic look.

  35. Great mans card. Thank you for joining us at Kraftyhands Challenge. Linda x

  36. Hey look at this we are in the same winners gallery!!! Wahoo!!
