2 Sketches 4 You




Here is the sketch for this week's challenge on 2 sketches, you will see that I totally turned it around. I had the crafters curse whilst I was making this, kept losing bits, the bobbin on the machine ran out of black thread halfway through, and I tried a dozen different colourways before I was satisfied. It's funny isn't it how some cards come together straight away, and you just know that it's okay (not perfect, but okay), and other times you struggle to get it right. Anyway, here it is, warts and all, and I am happy with it at long last. The paper is by Bo Bunny, the butterfly is a quickutz die (thanks Chris for the spelling, I never can get that right, just know there is a z in there somewhere!) that I fell in love with at a crop and the owner kindly let me cut a stock of them.
