Freshly Made Sketch #170

FMS Butterfly photo FMSbutterfly.jpg

I am late for the sketch once again, but had an idea in my mind and just had to use it!

Went with one of my favorite colour combos of pink and grey, and since I simply adore this PTI butterfly die and we have had a gloriously warm week weather wise here, it feel like spring, I had to use it!

As anyone who has followed my blog for any length of time can attest to, you don't have to twist my arm much at all to get me to add a butterfly to a card.   I paired it with this Top Dog doily die and was smitten.  Added the die cut sentiment, used a PTI impression plate on the grey for a bit of texture (though it doesn't show up in the photo) and finished it off with some silver pearls.  Nothing like a quick and easy card - though in reality it wasn't overly quick as I was trying a bunch of different things before settling for this combo!

For any followers who are on the East Coast, I hope you weathered the blizzard and have shovelled your way out from under all that snow!
