This is the third week of our Breast Cancer Awareness challenge at Tuesday Morning SketchesPlay along every week this month, add PINK to your card and only combine the TMS challenge with a maximum of 2 other challenges and your name will be entered for a chance to win blog candy.

This week we are creating a card using this sketch that was designed by Theresa. Can't wait to see your card! Don't forget to add a touch of "pink". This weeks sponsor is Print Candee.  They have card making scrapbooking and PARTY decorating images. Who doesn't love a party? There are also some "freebies", so ckeck them out. The second sponsor this week is DRS Designs, they have some wonderful stamps, do some surfing around their site.

As usual, I turned the sketch on it's side.

Vivid dye inks in Lavender and Olive were swirled onto a piece of vellum (direct to paper) then heat set. I used this piece of vellum to cut out the butterflies using a Memory Box die. The sentiments are from MTME, the large butterfly in the center is from a Cheery Lynn die. A piece of the dye swirled vellum was placed behind the butterfly using the Angel Wings die from Cheery Lynn.

Check out the cards created by other team members.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
