Mojo75 Sketch Challenge

This is my interpretation of the current Mojo Monday sketch for Week 75. As soon as I saw this sketch this morning, I knew right away that I wanted to try it. Julee really has the nicest sketches to play with, doesn't she? :) I decided to go with an elegant version using a repetition of just three colours. I love turquoise and black and white together.

Here's the sketch that I followed:

Here's a angle view to show you the way the butterfly wings curl when you watercolour on the vellum cardstock. Isn't she purdy? lol :)I've got another card to show you, but I have to wait until tomorrow night, since it's a swap card for a group of stamping friends that I'm meeting with Tuesday night. I'll schedule it to post when our group starts.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Supplies:
Stamps: Butterfly (Daisy Bucket Designs), Flourish - C95.182.N (Magenta), 'Thank You' - Amy Butler Lotus (K&Company)
