His Timing is Perfect and The Sweet Stop Sketch 104

Happy Saturday to everyone!! I am sorry I haven't had anything to share this week but I have had a couple of sick kids and a super busy week with school home work and projects. I did manage to get my card done for The Sweet Stop Sketch.  This week there is a spin, Winged Things which also means a prize to be won I love this sketch and I must say, I am pretty happy with my card as well.  The style is different for me but it has one of my favorite things, butterflies.  I have been waiting for the right project to use this paper from DCWV Mariposa stack.  I bet I took 50 photos and couldn't get the back layer to show up well, it is so much prettier in person.  I used this fabulous digi set from Sweet 'n Sassy called New Creature and you can find it HERE.

I colored the butterflies twice to make them look more realistic and give some dimension.  The edges were distressed and I then added Walnut Stain Distress Ink over them. The punch is from EK success and the leaf branch and circles are from Recollections.

My Riley has made a card to share so please take a look at the post below, she is even entering a couple of challenges so PLEASE show her some love.
Have a great weekend and I will see you Monday!!
Signature Final
