Freshly Made Sketches #16 and Less is More #49....

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year! I still can't believe that I didn't make even one handmade Christmas card this year. Oh well, that's the joy of working retail at Christmas time. I've just started two weeks holiday, so hopefully I'll get the chance to play along with all my favourite challenges :)

Today's card is a combination of two challenges. Freshly Made Sketches -


and Less is More - Predominantly Purple.



After such a long break from crafting, it took me far too long to put this card together! LOL We're going to a Naming Day this weekend and thought the different purples would make a lovely card for a little girl. I decided to flip the sketch to fit all three butterflies on.

I love reading your comments! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
