As You See It 197 - Design Team Card

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It! This week, we have a great sketch for you. I'm sure you'll see the many possibilities. If you visit the As You See It blog, you'll see the super examples that the rest of the ream have done.

As this challenge begins, it's the final few days of Sale-a-bration - your chance to earn fabulous freebies with qualifying orders, which is a great way to make your crafting money go further. So my card uses a number of Sale-a-bration freebies: The Botanical Butterflies DSP, the organdy ribbon combo pack and the Butterfly Elements embellishments.

In fact, I got so carried away with the sketch that I made a whole set of cards using the design. The SAB ribbon pack has five colours in it, so I made one of each colour.

I've CAS-ed an idea from the ever-amazing Paula Dobson. She made some cards where she coloured in the negative space on the black and white butterfly paper. This was an idea I completely loved and have used for these cards. The Stampin' Blends make this so very easy.

The sentiments come from Itty Bitty Birthday and, for the thank you, from Detailed with Love.
The lacy edge is from the Doily Builder thinlit set, a real honey of a set which is set to sell out soon so if you want some - get in quick!

You can play along with us until Wednesday 10 April, 11.55 p.m. PST. We'd love to see what you do with the sketch!

Product List (for the Granny Apple Green card)


  1. These are just gorgeous Jan - they make a lovely set! I think I might have to make some to use up some paper and have a little R&R colouring time! I have some ribbon too, so I'm good to go! Love that sketch too - need to get my thinking cap on to join in this week!

  2. Jan, your coloring is so perfect. I'm going to try my hand at this. What a nice gift these would be in a matching box. Or even as little 3 x 3 thank you cards! (Less!) I'll be joining in on the challenge Monday.

    1. Thanks, Karen! But really, this paper is very suited to a loose colouring style - very forgiving if you go a bit wonky! Look forward to seeing what you come up with for the challenge.
