Sketch # 94

Today's my birthday and I just realized as I was posting this that I am half as old as the number of today's challenge. How funny is that and what's the likelihood that something like that would happen? I know!!!! I'm OLD!!!!

Enough about that, I'm sure you didn't come here to get a math lesson. What you really came her for was to check out this week's Sketches card challenge.

What a fabulous sketch it is but don't take my word for it. Lookie here!!!

Here's what I did with the sketch:
Isn't that paper yummy? I loved the way the butterflies looked against it. It's from Memory Box and I found it at my LSS (The Stamp Asylum). In fact, I loved it so much I went back and made a Mother's Day card just like it for someone at work. I think I'm gonna have to go back and get some more.
The butterflies are covered with Glossy Accents to give them shine. The big butterfly is from Stampin Up's On Gossamer Wings and is stamped in burgundy and watercolored using browns.
If you like this, you'll love what the rest of the team did with the challenge. You can find their lovely work on the Sketches site. Head on over and check it out. You're in for a treat.
I can see the minutes clicking away on the clock. I'll sure be glad when I get my internet back at the house. I don't mind coming to the library, but I sure would like to have a little more time. You know the saying "time flies when you're having fun"? Well it should be "time flies when you're trying to acomplish about a hundred things on the computer in the time span of an hour". Whew! What a mouthful! With that said, I'm gonna say bye bye for now! Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN
Hugs, Becky
