Here was my card sketch posted for our group to use as inspiration:
I created this sketch using Adobe Illustrator, a part of the Creative Suite. I've been using Illustrator far longer than I've been blogging, and I still only know about 10% of its great capabilities. I hope to learn more!
Here is my "take" on the sketch:
I used the beautiful new line of papers called "Chantilly" by Close To My Heart, featured in the new Idea Book. The Idea Book was just issued on Friday, February 1, and I'll tell you, the papers have fantastic designs -- a breath of fresh air! -- and they truly cut like butter on your Cricut or Cameo, or even with your paper trimmer. No jaggedy edges!!
The intricate "Asian Butterfly" is a design from Silhouette America's online store. I thought it complemented the sweet paisleys and flowers on the CTMH paper. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossoms. The gems are from CTMH as well.
