Truly Scrumptious - a Sketch

It's time for another challenge at Truly Scrumptious and sadly this will be the
 56th and FINAL challenge for a while. Yes, that's right, this will be the last Truly Scrumptious challenge for a while. Sharon started this challenge blog in February 2009 and we have all been thrilled with the support it has received from the crafting community. But circumstances change and  family and new business ventures are taking so much of  her time now, leaving very little for anything else.

On to the weeks challenge -


I've used one the the hAnglar stAnglar Sitting Butterflies as my image and coloured her in Copics and also inked the edges of the nesties cut out circles with Copics. The papers are old, old Hot off the Press ones (I am being so good at using up - I've given myself a pat on the back!!) The rafia lace across the middle is also some I've had for a couple of years. The swirls and leaves are cut with a Magnolia doohickey die, the flowers are again some of my old Prima ones which I have folded over and fastened with a pearl bad. The pearls swirl  is the last piece of a Prima one and the little metal butterfly is coloured with Copics.

It is sad to say Goodbye but hopefully in the future when Sharon's life settles down we will be back, meanwhile thank you all for joining us over the years.

This card also fits the following challenges
Lovely hAnglars only who want to see our favourite stamps - my favourites are always the ones that are unused as this one has been so far!!

Love the colours on this. Loving anything with butterflies makes that metal butterfly a real joy for me. Well done on using your scraps - I'm trying that too - trouble is there isn't enough so I end up using a fresh piece of paper to finish the design off so end up with more scraps than when I started. Sometimes I wonder if the perverse genie would like to afflict someone else for a change - not you of course; think you have your own little companion already.
