The Challenge #29 - a Sketch

It is the first week of the month....are you ready to rock a sketch with The Challenge this week?  Besides having a fun sketch, we have the fabulous Lea Lawson joining us... she has awesome skills! 

Here is your sketch:

 
I really didn't stray very much from the sketch this time as I wanted to use that main space for a little stamping... I may have a new fave... aren't I fickle?
 
 
Using a scrap of blue A.C. cardstock, and a little distress inking of some PTI linen vellum gave me a good base for these gorgeous Scandinavian Flowers from Neat n Tangled.  Add a few little Martha butterflies [even did a little smooshing] and I was quite happy!
 
Hope this inspires you to join The Challenge this week!  Seeing the creative ways you own these challenges just never gets old!!

How did this gorgeous tulip and sweet butterflies card nearly sneak past my watchful eyes? Good thing I spotted it, because wow, wow and wow...made my day! We're enjoying a most delightful snowfall (enough already and yes, being completely sarcastic!) so your card is lifting the clouds, moving away the flakes, and bringing me the promise of Spring. Sooooo pretty!
