OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #138 and Gobstopper's

Hello -- I am so glad you stopped in -  I am posting one card that I made today.


I used the sketch #138 from OWH and tried my hand at Ghosting behind the silhouette.  
I know the sketch shows the right area empty -- but I just couldn't leave it empty.
I picked the yellow gobstopper color -- mine is a bit subdued in the picture it is a little
brighter in person.

Supplies:  The card stock,  the image - Serene Silhouette; the sentiment - Short & Sweet and the butterfly -
Papillion Potpourri are all from Stampin' Up.  The embossing folder is from
Tim Holtz collection and the ribbon is from Adornaments by EK Success



Challenges:


The Lollipop Ladies Fortnight Gobstopper Challenge #54




The Lollipop Ladies is having a fortnight Gobstopper Challenge #54 - the challenge
is to use a color from one of the candies and to be Monochromatic.

I just learned on The Lollipop Ladies previous - Sherbies Challenge #53 -- I won first place and will be a Guest Designer for their Challenge #57.  I am honored and frightened all in the same sentence.  LOL


Hope you all have a great crafting week.

Hugs,

Sharon
