Flutterby, butterfly onto a Sweet Sketch

Well I know that one of my followers may not like the image that I chose this week but when I saw it I immediately had an idea and miraculously managed to remember it. Wish I could remember all the things my boss asks me to do as easily...or maybe not.

Our sponsor over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week is Patties Creations who is offering our lucky winner 2 free images.

So as it is the last sketch of the month (can you believe we are almost at the end of April already) we are revisiting this great sketch created by Arlana




I flipped the sketch and here is what I did with it.


Base card is 7 inch square
Papers are from First Edition - Paper Flowers pad
Vellum and purple card have been on the shelves for a while.
Trellis embossing folder is from Crafts Too
Branches are Leafy Branch from Memory Box
Flowers are EK Success.
I coloured my butterflies with Promarkers
Gems are from the bargain bin at the local craft shop
Ribbon is from the jar - a whole 9 inches!
Butterfly image printed 3 times and raised up with pinflair.

Thank you for visiting and please hop over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2  blog and see the gorgeous creations my team mates have designed.

When I first saw your card I thought, "Wow, this is stunning, but where is the image?" and then I realized what you had done. UH-mazing! You are soo clever. Totally stealing this idea.

Anne your card is totally stunning you rocked it this week. When I first saw your card I thought what image did she use and then I realized your brilliance it looks totally amazing and your colours and wonderful embellishments are perfect. I guess you didn't use ribbon in the inside with only 9 inches of it. Just sometimes I've tried to stretch it as I need a centimetre more which doesn't happen or realised I had the most perfect ribbon for a card and when I've taken off the spool I don't even have enough for a card and thought I had more on the spool. I love your card this week it's yummy.
Hugs
