Stampin' Up! Beauty of Tomorrow for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers and welcome all to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge.

Here's what I created for it...

and here is the sketch...
My card base is Soft Succulent Cardstock. I cut a piece of Ever Eden DSP of one pattern (3 1/4" x 5 3/8") and flipped the pattern over and cut a 3/4" x 5 3/8" strip. I adhered it to the base with liquid glue. No Dimensionals were harmed in the making of this card!

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set in Soft Succulent on a piece of Basic White. I used a die from the Eden Dies set to cut it out. I kept the inner portion and saved the white frame for another day. I sponged it with Soft Succulent ink and went heavier in two corners so my Brushed Brass Butterflies would show up better. (Dec. 1 they will be available to Demonstrators who didn't attend OnStage and to customers on January 3, 2022.) Needless to say, I will be ordering more of them! Then I recut the frame out of Gold Foil and glued it to the sentiment part. I added three more butterflies to the front of the card.

For the inside...

I adhered a mat of Soft Succulent (4 1/8" x 5 3/8") to the base. On a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Basic White, I stamped another sentiment from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set using Soft Succulent ink. I stamped the flower from that set third generation. To finish the inside, I adhered a strip of DSP (1/2" x 5 1/4").
