Flowers and Butterflies and Dots, Oh My!

 
Third Verve sketch for the month is now done and only one left to go :)  The sketch proved to be easier than I originally thought it would be so that was a bonus!

With spring in the air, and some minor sketch stress (like 30 seconds but it qualified LOL), I succumbed to using dots, flowers and butterflies again.  I tried to mix it up a bit...honest...but this combination just gives me too much joy so I'm claiming being genetically wired towards it ;)

Off to finish up the last sketch for this month and it is a doozy - totally out of the box for me!  Wish me luck! I'm claiming mental and creative stress well in advance of posting the card so beware, there could be more flowers on the horizon LOL!   Back once I have it completed.

I'm skipping VLV this month. Just too many other things going on. THis challenge is a tough one, but you've layered such a pretty assortment of things. Looks great!

Who would complain at seeing flowers, butterflies, and dots? Not me! You always combine them beautifully, and the elements are perfect for the sketch!

Lots of pretty punches and dies used here and it all came together to make a beautiful card.

Anxiously awaiting that next card..:-)

Very pretty Marisa. Love the dots and flowers but sad to see the Mom's Day cards come to an end - LOL! I really like this sketch - maybe I will try it...

This is such a pretty card. You are so good with all those layers. Love it. I would never have thought of these colors together and really like it.
