Makeesha's Sketch Challenge - #16

Hoot-Hoot Hooray!


It has been a lot of fun figuring out what to do with this new sketch challenge. When I saw Makeesha's gorgeous example to go with the challenge, I was so keen to get out my new butterfly stamps and punch (available in the Summer Mini from Dec. 1st). Instead, I thought I'd try something a little different. However, I'm definitely going to make a similar card with butterflies, before the week is out!

Sketch Challenge - #16

This is my third challenge for Makeesha and I must admit, they are becoming a highlight for me and somewhat of an addiction (in a good way). At least my friend, Leonie (from Calder) will eventually get a card for her birthday! I realised today that I had missed it ... oops!

Thanks for stopping by,
Bronwyn :)

What a cute card, love the colours you have used. Can't go to wrong with browns and greens, they compliment each other so well. Ribbon combination is great.
