This card looks like the middle panel is larger than the others, but it's really not - it's popped up on foam adhesive while the outer two panels are adhered directly to the card. I tried to get a good angle on it for you, but it's REALLY windy here today and this was the best I could do! The butterflies are punched out and popped up on foam adhesive; to make the side butterflies, I cut two butterflies in half and used both right wings on one of them and both left wings on the other. To make the grass, I first stamped the grass image from Inspired by Nature in Garden Green ink, and then filled in with as many different green markers as I wanted. This is a blank card, good for any number of occasions. A really versatile and fun sketch to play with!

Fabulous take on the sketch! I like how you popped up the middle panel. The grass looks amazing. Love how you used different shades of green. The butterflies are beautiful. You are so clever to exchange the wings to make the butterflies from a side view. Terrific card. A wonderful card to have on hand. Thanks for playing in the Sketch Challenge.

Wow!!! Your card is EXACTLY what I needed as an inspiration piece! A dear friend just today gifted me with her Papillon Potpourri, the matching punch AND Inspired by Nature. (She is getting rid of her stamping collection because her interests have changed.). I was wanting to make a thank you card using the stamps and I found your beautiful creation - how cool is that? Very!!!
Love, love, love the way you cut the butterfly to make a profile view. That is brilliant! And your multi-green colored grasses are gorgeous.
Can’t wait to try my hand at combining these 2 sets. Again, thanks for providing an inspiration piece for me to study!
