A Little Flower

This card is made using the sketch from this weeks sketch challenge at PCP. When I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to play along, because it had a butterfly on it. Since the sketch called for tone on tone, with a bit of contrast, my Silhouette papers came to mind. I didn't do anything special here, no inked edges, no pop dots, no fancy corners. It's pretty simple and straight forward. Oh! I did a bit of piercing on two of the corners.

The sketch

Ooo, this is so pretty! You are rocking with the sketch challenges. Mine sketch is coming up soon. Can't wait to see what you create!

Ohhhhhhh so pretty!

How did you determine this..."Since the sketch called for tone on tone, with a bit of contrast...?" from the sketch? I'm honestly curious because maybe I totally don't undeerstand the nuances when I look at sketches.

You know I love me some butterflies!

To Answer Jeanne's question:
The sketch designers sample and her description of her sketch on the PCP site are what gave me the 'tone on tone with a bit of contrast' take on this sketch.
