Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Thank you for stopping here from wherever you came! We have a sketch challenge today and here is what I created for our hop.

So, let's take a closer look, shall we?

My Pretty Peacock base measures 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2". The Wild Wheat Designer Series Paper from the Fresh as a Daisy 12" x 12" pack measures 3 3/4" x 5". The second piece measures 3 3/8" x 4 5/8". Here's what's in the package...isn't it beautiful?

The Distressed Gold Specialty Paper is cut out with a die from the Artistic set.

I added three Brushed Brass Butterflies to finish the front.

For the inside...

The sentiment is stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink with a stamp from the Happy Labels set. I added one more butterfly which depleted my supply.  Stampin' Up! has a lot available so I'm off to replenish!
