Sketch Saturday Challenge #263

Today, is my second official post for the Sketch Saturday design team!  I'm loving it already.  :D  I used a ODB stamp set I just got too - what a concept using a stamp right away rather than a year later - LOL!

Sketch Saturday is a sketch blog, there's a new sketch challenge each Saturday.  I've been a follower for awhile and love the sketches.  Sketch Saturday Challenges are open to all images, all you have to do is follow the sketch.  Simple concept - Love it!   

So here is Sketch #263 (designed by Jen):
 This is my interpretation of the sketch:
The hexagon pattern is a patterned paper from My Mind's Eye "Be Amazing" paper pad.  I cut it free hand, following the pattern in the sketch.  The yellow gingham is also from the same MME paper pad. 
Jen (sketch designer extraordinaire) had mentioned in our instructions she was thinking an image could be added to one side.  I chose an image from Our Daily Bread "Butterfly Branch".  I stamped the branch twice and cut out one branch, added some color.  The second image, I colored and cut out the butterflies to add dimension to the branch.

Supplies -- 
Stamps: Our Daily Bread "Butterfly Branch", Sentiment TAC
Patterned papers: My Mind's Eye "Be Amazing"
Cardstock: PTI Kraft, Bazzill Artesian Pool
Ink: Memento Black 
Copic Colors: E40, E41, E43, E44, E47, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, RV23, RV25, RV29, BG10, BG56, BG57
