Keeshs Sketch Challenge


I have been busting to play with this sketch since Keesh posted it on Friday. I can see so many possibilities and I think it would also be great for a scrapbook page which I have in mind as well. I soooo wanted to play yesterday but I had my DS sick with vomitting all night and day so I was a little tired yesterday. Anyway I am grabbing a few secs now before I go outside to attack the garden and collect some wood. My garden is sooo needing some attention because I have been spending far to much time in my craft room........Thats winter I spoose......Now for the card.....I made this with my daughter's birthday in mind, she loooooves pink and butterflies....The colours are Rose Red, Pink Pirrouette and Kiwi Kiss. I have used Inspired by Nature, Flight of the Butterfly and Think Happy Thoughts for the stamp set. I have used some of the white brads and a Kiwi Kiss Cord Button as well, these are both able to be ordered from out of the new mini now..... I used three butterflies because she is soon going to be three.......Have a great day.......

Hi Mandy - your card summed up in one word - beautiful!! How I love the grass stamp and the flutterbys. And all so pretty in the shades of pink.
I cant wait until I can have a garden again - be a while yet so it seems!

Mandy. This card is so pretty. I bought this set as soon as the new catty came out but have not used it. I am definately going to use your post to get me motivated to use it.
Thanks for the inspiration.
