Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge #104 Janet's Sketch

Hello to you all my wonderful friends and blogging buddies.
I hope you are all well and enjoying the festive season.
I can hardly believe that today is the last day of 2012, my mum always says that time goes quicker as you get older and now I can see her point!

Anyway, today is also the start of a new Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge and this time our fabulous sketch has been designed by the lovely Janet

I used the sketch to make a birthday card for a crafting buddy that I met on the Do-crafts forum. It is her birthday today so I hope she has received it! I know that she likes spiders so I hope she likes butterflies too!

Items Used:
Ink stamps ~ Kaisercraft Tigerlilly coloured with Promarkers
Papers ~ First Edition Noir er Chic
Cheery Lynn Dancing Doily Lace Border Die
Craftwork cards Sentiment
Ribbon and pearls from stash

Here is Janet's fab sketch:

This challenge is sponsored by

Prize..........£10 Voucher

If you pop over to the Sketch n Stash Challenge blog you will be able to see the fabulous creations made by the rest of the design team and see who were the winners of the last challenge.

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
LMM - Anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Anything Goes
Flutterby Wednesday - #220 Open Challenge

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my blog today, I really do appreciate it.

So as 2012 comes to an end I would like to say thank you once again to you all for making me feel so welcome into this wonderful blogging community. I felt so nervous when I added my first card 7 months ago, you have no idea how much your kindness has helped me in so many ways.

I wish you all the best and a Happy New Year!

My dear friend, this is positively exquisite! I cannot get over how stunning this paper pad is, but even more stunning is how you use it. :o) The butterflies are something to behold! Your coloring is exquisite, as are all of the accents you sprinkled throughout. That Cheery Lynn die is fantastic! I love that you added blues to the color scheme.. I struggle knowing what to pair with brown/cream. Thanks for the inspiration. :o) And lastly, the design itself is beautiful. I hope you never ever question your talent as a designer because your creative spirit is a treasure. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
