Sketchbook Saturday #90...


I love Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday sketches, they're always so different from what I normally come up with!  I like the challenge of the layers and embellishments, although I'm not sure how successful I am!!

It's been ages since I made a card with butterflies on so I HAD to keep these as butterflies!  I don't have a butterfly die or punch (yet!) so that's probably why I don't use them so much.

Here is my card;

This picture looks a bit dark because I'm now in a work space where I have no windows so I have to take my photo's using artificial light.  Not ideal, but at least I now have a space to call my own!!  You can't really see it, but there's glitter down the middle of each butterfly, it looks nice and sparkly in real life :)

I really enjoyed this challenge, thank you Chupa!  This card will be going to my friend next month for her birthday, I hope she likes it :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)

  3. Gosh, what fabulous pastel colour palette! Just perfect, I need to save it for a future reference, as I nearly never reach for these colours together... Love the black accent too, adds an edge to the card!
