Paper Players Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great Sunday! Today at The Paper Players Sandy has a sketch for us:

I chose a Lil Inkers rounded tag and adhered a SU doily. Remember those? It's retired now, I could never get all of them to cut out decently, just the larger one. But it got plenty of use anyway! It worked perfectly for this card.

I colored the hollyhocks with some Copics, and then cut out a butterfly. The sentiment is stamped in black from Penny Black.

I used my Wink of Stella on the butterfly, and added a tiny pearl:

You can see it a little better here:

This card was fun to make! As you can see,Sandy has a great sketch this week.

 I hope you play along!

Your card today is so pretty and delicate Laurie - I love the Wink of Stella on your butterfly wings and how different the hollyhock looks on this week to last week's card, with the little pop of yellow. All the best people love butterflies ;-)
