Faith is Hope

The minute I saw this stamp set by GinaK Designs I knew I had to have it for a number of reasons starting with the fact that some of the proceeds would go to help the people in Haiti and the wonderful saying and the awesome butterfly. I had a fun time with this set. I stamped the butterfly on vellum and colored it with Copics. Then I just spread out some card stock to see what colors I wanted as the backdrop without taking away from the image and the saying. It took a little while to come up with the colors and finally decided on the stark contrast of yellow and black. The layout was for Sketch Girl challenge and the StampTV sketch layout. Double entry! That does not happen to me very often. Then I browsed on over to Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger and saw that challenge to use yellow - well - - this is yellow!

This is beautiful!!! Great color combo and that butterfly is beyond amazing. So striking and so different from your other card. You are right about the sketches...very similar! I will have to give Jennie a hard time seeing as how she is a Sketch Girl too :>)
Thanks for playing along again!
