Today's card is simple and is entirely and outcome for my love of sketches. When I saw Teri's sketch at Skipping Stones Designs challenge#90, I knew I am gonna whip up a card for it for sure(but of course I tweaked it a bit:) ).

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Skipping Stones(Grunge);ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar), Unity Stamp Co.(Raw Sienna); Embellishments: Butterfly rub-on(Studio Calico), SRM Sticker
Can you tell that the beautiful wood grain background on this card started as a white card stock sheet? I love myself more when I do things like that..hehehe. The butterflies are rub-ons from Studio calico (available for purchase with me...just saying :) ) and the sentiment is an SRM sticker.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!

For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D)

Here is another variations I came up with.
