Sweet Pea with Flowers

Hi all, hubby didn't need me at work today, so I have had a little time to play YEH!!

So out came the Sweet Peas, (ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection sheet 14 #plate43). I love these girls but am slightly intimidated when it comes to colouring them, but as they say practice makes perfect (hopefully, eventually lol), and of course she is coloured using my copics.

Finally got to us my MS Butterfly border punch, soooo loooove these punches. Sentiment is from Sweet Pea Stamps too (link in sidebar).
The butterfly is sparkly, just doesn't show in photo.

Had a few challenges in mind and couldn't decide on a layout, when I read Randi's blog and came across Kaitlyn's sketch which closes soon, so hopefully I make it.

  2. Oh Beautiful. I love it. And love the butterfly border punch.
    You did a wonderful job coloring her. I know how you feel though.... I still get a bit intimidated but honestly, they are soooo much fun to color and allowed me to really play with color combinations. Great job and thanks so much for playing our challenge at Sweet Pea Stamps.

  10. Hi Annette

    A lovely card.

    Great image and your sentiment is so nice.

    Good use of your MS punch - I bet there will be butterflies on everything for at least two weeks (well there would be in my house anyway).

    Love Jules xx
