Sketch Saturday #228

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful
If you pop over to Sketch Saturday
you will see the 4 pretty images they are giving away to our lucky winner.
This week our own lovely Donna has designed a fab sketch and Little Claire's kindly gave us some digis to play with.   I used two pretty camelia images which you can find here, coloured in Copics and Promarkers and combined them with a Word processed sentiment printed directly over one of the bouquets.  I cut out all the petals from the corner bouquet and popped them up on silicone.

My main background DP is K&Co and the other papers are from my scraps drawer.  The butterfly is made from two Memory Box dies.  I cut the solid shape from acetate (the die doesn't go all the way through but it leaves an impression that is easy to cut with scissors) and glittered the underside before mounting the more delicate cut on top.  This card is for my Mum.  She is a gold medalist worrier about anything and everything.  The card won't stop her worrying but no doubt she will enjoy receiving it.
There is lots of lovely inspiration from the DT this week.  Do pop over to their blogs and share some love and then come and join in the fun with this wonderful sketch.
