3 in 1 Challenge

Having been away I am dying to get my teeth back into all the great challenges out there. This card has to cover three bases! The sketch I used is the current one over at Sketch & Stash. I have used old & new stash on this. The lilac paper is really old from Paper Adventures I got when I started crafting about 6 years ago. Back then I was into scrapbooking mainly & this came in a QVC kit. The pink Cherryarte DP is a more recent purchase, from Silly Monkey Crafts I think. My new stash are the butterfly buttons I got from Stampeezee, in the £1 section! They also qualify the card for this weeks challenge at Spoonfull of Sugar this week which is butterflies. Which is a good job as I thought I was using Butterfly Tilda from the Spring collection, but I think she is actually a fairy! Finally the colour scheme at Colour Create this week is lilac, blush pink & mossy green. I have to say I thought this card would look fab, but I am not totally happy with it. Those wings are a bit OTT! Though it does look better in real life, the papers do not show up so well in the photo.
Hope your week has gotten off to flyer, unlike me & my hubby Paul. I am blaming him for undercooking the sausages on the BBQ we had yesterday. He felt too sick to go into work today & worked from home, I have spent most of the day in bed! Anyway, I am feeling well enough to do some crafting now, so hopefuly I will be in work tomorrow - oh joy!! Thankfully the children did not have any sausage or we would have been in a mess!

Regards,
Andie xx
