For You Sketch Creation

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday Friends!!!!
My post for today will be short & sweet!  The card I created this morning is featuring the layout  from Sketch Saturday , the colors I used came from The Color Dare & the butterflies are for Flutter By Wednesday

As always, I felt that my layers were sort of plain so I lightly textured the Marina Mist & Whisper White pieces and then added the deep texture from my Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Daffodil Delight layer.  When I ran the Beautiful Wings die through my Big Shot, I decided to use all the butterflies because it just *flowed* to me.  I really do think that they were the finishing touch to this card & I'm very pleased with it!!

Well, that's it for now!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
