The Sketchy Challenges DT - Sandy's Sketch

 Good morning!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend.  We have a new sketch up over at The Sketchy Challenges by our lovely Sandy who is also sponsoring with a £10 voucher for Live & Love Crafts!  If you have some crafty time this weekend I hope you can join us, it is a gorgeous sketch!  Shock horror...another card without stamping from me lol!  I have used a Go Kreate die for the card base and Magnolia papers from the Easter Collection.  I managed to cover up all the Easter sentiments on the paper with some frantage!!  OMG I only just got some of this and wish I'd succumbed sooner, love it already lol!
Some of the butterflies were cut from Pion Design cut out paper and then I used them as a template to cut out some more from the reverse of the paper.  I've also added some smaller butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch.  The tree was cut with Tim Holtz Branch Tree die and I 've embossed a Hero Arts stamp onto it with some more Frantage.  The butterflies have all been edged with stickles.
 The "70" is also from a Tim Holtz die and ooooh that's been Frantage'd too lol!  It is framed with Spellbinders Gold Labels 4 which I've also used for the image mat.
 The stunning lace, rose and button twine are from The Ribbon Girl and I've added a touch of stickles to the rose too.
 I've used the Magnolia Doily Doohickey for the circle element of the sketch.
 I know I'm so behind the times but here's a close up of the Frantage - so pretty!!  The brads are from Whiff of Joy.
 I added some curlicues either side of the image mat cut with Tim Holtz Festive Greenery die - I'm really trying to use my dies more...I have all these dies and just forget about them once they're stored away!  Tut, tut!
I hope you like my card and I've inspired you to join us at The Sketchy Challenges.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning cards!  Thanks for looking! x
