Exciting new Adventure!!

So I've been keeping a secret!!! And a fun one at that!   I'm so excited to be a member of the Scrapbook Essentials BC DT!! I was excited and honoured to be a part of this DT because it is local!!  Well, an hour and a half away so pretty darn local if you ask me.  LOL!!!

We have a challenge blog located here at Essential Sketches where each week the Design team (the DT consists of only members from Vancouver Island which I think is pretty darn cool) will be having a challenge each Tuesday. We'll be featuring cards using the "Set of the Month" and this month it's a fabulous one called Whimsical Butterflies available at Scrapbook Essentials BC. 

Our first challenge is a sketch for you:

And here is my card:

I've been in such a Christmas card mode that it was nice to be able to make a card using Spring colours (from the Crate Paper Random Collection).  I've stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and then embossed it with clear embossing powder and watercolored it with my Tombow Markers.  I really like how this card turned out. 

Check out what the rest of the DT has created.

We'd love for you to participate with us and here are the rules for playing:
