Butterflies for Beate's Weekend Sketch



Butterflies, Paisley, Ribbon and glitter.... a few of my favorite things!
And I used them for the always wonderful Beate's weekend sketch! She's had 20 sketches for us so far! Keep 'em comin', Beate! I hope I can do them all. {Wink}


The kids are watching a movie and the baby is sleeping so I sneaked away for a few minutes to finish up my card and post it. I am not extremely excited about this card. I learned that you need a darker backing behind the pierced image for it to show up very well.... especially in a photo. But I had stuck these guys down very well and they were not coming up! Sorry for the not so great picture. I had to take it outside and get it at just the right angle.
