What a fun sketch this week over at 2 sketches 4 you & I ended up with a real event on this one.

All papers are Basic Grey

Centre strip is a piece of Anna Griffin self adhesive paper ribbon

Image is Sweet & Sassy from Funky Kits

Flower, chipboard sentiment, ribbon, mesh butterfly & little acrylic flowers are from stash

Image was coloured using Bruynzeel water colour pencils

Now what was the real event I had with this one... well wait for it...

As you know it's Gayle's birthday today & I decided to make this card for her... no relying on Mr Postie etc... decided to hand deliver and later got a text from her saying... you do realise it's not a valentine card... well that sure had me wondering... then I realised I'd actually finished the card last night & set it aside to allow the silicone to dry... got up this morning & put it in the envelope without even signing it... now how much of a numpty am I... Just glad she has a good sense of humour.

Hope you've all had a better day than I obviously have. lol

Happy crafting

Lovely card, Lorraine.. Loving the papers, loving the way you've done the image, love it that you've used a flower for the scalloped edge (really clever.. might lift that idea!).. and love that wee butterfly.. Gorgeous!

Have fun today..
