Between Butterflies

Hello everyone,

Already Wednesday again, time just flies as we near the end of the year. My card for today was made for a sketch challenge last week but unfortunately I missed the deadline.  But anyway, still a wonderful sketch. I used a Penny Black stamp that I neglected for a long time and although not a detailed stamp, I love the simplicity of the little hedgie on the swing. To jazz up the card I added lots of my favourite paper roses, lace, butterflies and seam binding… and of course lots of glitter on the butterflies and roses!.

Challenges:

    I am fairly new to card making and totally new to blogging so I have just found your wonderful blog. I just wanted to say that I have never seen anything like the array of absolutely beautiful cards you have on your blog. Each one is as fabulous as the other – it would be impossible to choose a favourite. I have added my name as a follower and will be eagerly awaiting your next card.
