It is time for another great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. This week it is one of my favorite Pals, Linda at Stampin' Seasons, who designed the layout. This is what gets your creative juices flowing ...
This is what my inky fingers created ...

I knew I wanted to use this flower so that was my starting point ... after knowing I was going to use this sketch. This is one card that I really struggled on to get it to "work". It turned out to be an all afternoon project. I hit the craft room at 1 p.m. By the time I was trying to cut out the butterfly (I don't like fussy cutting at all and it shows), my husband was home from work. He works until 6 p.m. and then has a 25 minute drive. Phew, I got it done and am satisfied with the end result.
The tails on my ribbon ended up a bit on the short side. I kept whacking them off for one reason or another. Thankfully, I put the scissors down and didn't have to make a new bow. I added the yellow panel to brighten up the Night of Navy. I'm still feeling the spring colors ... love 'em!
Thanks for stopping by and as always,
Have a great day,
