Another 4 in 1

Hi all this is the second card that I said I would be posting today and is my entry for four challenges which are as follows:

Spoonful Of Sugar Butterflies
Simon Says Pink and Brown
Flutter by Wednesday A sketch with butterflies and/or fairies.

I am quite pleased with this card not only because I managed to complete it for four challenges but I also had another go with distressing and I think it worked.....do you think so as well? I used Tim Holtz Tattered Rose this time instead of the Mahogany colour I think using the lighter colour didn't look so frightening.

Ok I have used a Sugar Nellie stamp with a little butterfly coloured it with promarkers in pink and brown but not just one of each I used different shades. The sketch is lovely and easy to work with I used Bearlymine backing papers and also did some distressing on that as well, I added four little glittered butterflies to the corners some gems, flowers and sentiment. I hope you like it. Hugs to all

Hi Lorraine. This is so sweet. I love that image and all the little butterflies and flowers. It's a lovely card.

I read all those interesting things about you - I feel the same about animals and I still can't swim even though I've had lessons!!

What about that horrible linnet on Springwatch? I wouldn't make a wildlife camera person - I'd put the chick back in the nest!
