The Sugar Bowl Challenge Entry

Hello friends...

Ahhh.... it feels so good to be back on track making a card a day...I'd say it keeps the doctor away, but seems I tweeked my back last night, so guess it didnt work! Anyway, the grandaughter is back with her parents and I am buried in my craftroom playing with paper again.

I have an artist that truely inspires me and I just love to see what she makes everyday... here is her blog address Wendy's Main Blog , I encourage you to check out her amazing talent! She is on "the Sugar Bowl" DT, so I thought Id make a card for their sketch challenge. Here is my creation:
I used a "Sugar Nellie" Rubber Stamp
DP by Wild Rose Studio Butterfly Garden
Gemstone Cardstock
Whimsey Butterfly Dies
Cherry Lynn Designs Flourish (Corner Die)
WOC Flowers
Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page
Ribbon from my Stash
Sentiment ...Freebie Rubber Stamp I won from somewhere
My "tip" is when coloring and shading with your medium...
if you go outside the lines with bleeding and your colorless blender is not
doing the trick, simply use a white gel pen
to cover the mistake!

Here is the sketch with an optional theme of BUTTERFLIES
Challenge 89 - Butterflies
