Sketch Frenzy Friday 052512

I am off this weekend so am hoping to get some stamping done.  We were supposed to go golfing but that is now on the back burner.  We will see for tomorrow.
Today I have the card I did for the challenge at Sketch Frenzy Friday this week.  
I decided to do this card in all rusts and yellows.  My stamp sets are the big sunflower and Well Scripted.  I used a technique for the background where I glued a book page on to white card stock, embossed this with the lattice embossing folder and then spritzed it with my homemade shimmer mist.  Then I sponged rust ink over this whole piece to give different shades.
The butterfly trim is lace I purchased in Curacao at a little fabric store.  I stamped the sunflower with rust and then sponged a few shades of yellow, orange and brown on it.  Since it was too big for the card, I simply cut off the corner until I liked the fit.
Hope you visit Sketch Frenzy Friday this weekend and please, I would appreciate any comments you may have.
Happy weekend!!
