Sweet Sunday Sketch #60

Happy Sunday!!!! How's the weather today????? Humid, HOT and pretty much YUK!!!... Well that's what it's like for us West Aussies :o)... hopefully it's a little nicer where ever you may be.

Karen has set another FUN sketch for us this week, SOOOO I hope you can find some time to sit down and play along.

Here is my card for today's sketch:-

And here is the sketch for you:-

I knew I wanted to use the colour combo of Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, and Garden Green... all was going well until I had a brainwave to use Butterflies and then when I tried to get them all in a little cluster... WELL... it kinda wasn't doing what I had hoped. I did however persevere, which involved an awful amount of fluffing around, fiddling, sighing, going for a walk, coming back and looking at it again, tilting my head ( you know sometimes that helps.. Right?) and then a little more fiddling until I figured it was either going to work and you'd like it (which I hope you do) OR it wasn't going to work and you'd look at it with a tilted head and squinted eyes and just kinda well.. OK NOT LIKE IT!!!!

I do though hope you go for the first option, but do feel free to let me know if you don't.. I PROMISE I won't be offended.. LOL.

Righty enough waffling... why don't you pop on over and visit the rest of the AMAZING Sweet Sunday Stampers... you know they'll have some AMAZING creations for you to see and of course be inspired by:-
