Buttons & a sketch!

I almost blew the deadline for the current sketch challenge at IBSIC - I've been busy preparing ahead for my DT commitments for September, and though my card's been made for days I forgot to, you know, photograph it and post it? Minor things, but important. I've also joined in with the buttons challenge at Confessions of a DeNami Addict. Here's my card - might want to get some sunglasses first:
Supplies: papers from Bo Bunny;
standard oval, labels 4, butterfly Nesties;
Purple Twilight Adirondack ink;
Versamark, clear EP;
Maya Road resin flower;
buttons from stash;
scrap vellum & purple cardstock

The oval and label are each on a layer of foam tape for dimension.
The butterfly is made from 2 different dies.


IBSIC-#22

The IBSIC sketch challenge ends Wednesday night (tonight), and the DeNami Addict button challenge runs until September 8th. 

So why am I going so far against my usual last-minute method for DT assignments? Because in 2 weeks, I'm going to Vancouver for 2 weeks to see my little sister get married :) It hasn't quite sunk in fully that it's in 2 weeks - time to drop those dresses off at the cleaners, find a nice pair of shoes, maybe some Spanx...(or maybe not, if you've seen this article at Crappy Pictures!) Nearly time to run around panicking...you'll hear me hollering from wherever you are ;)

xoxo,
Jessi
