Second sketch for March ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well. As I had this stamp set out to create my first sketch card I thought it would be rude not to use the beautiful daisy stamp that makes up this set and here is the end result …

A 150mm square card
It has lots of lovely depth
All the yummy details
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
I was inspired by the sketch and the photograph

I also used up the left over patterned paper snippets from the other card and another Kraft card snippet and I used an NBUS die that I purchased last year but have only just gotten around to using. The butterflies were die cut from a rejected stamped piece. So much of the detail is still visible on the solid butterflies but I think it adds to the end look and doesn’t jar with the patterned paper which is a real bonus. I know that the butterflies were also stamped with Aqua markers last year.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Your butterflies on the edge of the craft card are just fine and certainly do count. I have some of that gorgeous freebie design paper too. Your flowers are so pretty. The whole card is a delight in spring colours. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden. Hugs Mrs A.
