A Picture Paints a Thousand Words

Happy Monday everyone !  Welcome to my little crafty space, I hope you had a great weekend.

The project I'm sharing with you today is my entry for this week's Sketchie Challenge over on the Craft Mad and Loving It group on Craftbubble.  The lovely Cherry set the sketch and theme this week, providing us with an inspirational picture of some story cubes. 

At first glance this week's theme was a bit daunting, but a quick look through a few stamps and the idea for my card popped into my head. 

For my design I used a deckle edge C6 cream base card, Botanical Print stamp set by Papermania, Antique Linen Distress Ink, Promarkers and a sentiment created on my computer.  I matted the main text image over a scrap of shabby chic style brown polka dot paper, stamped then cut out the butterflies from the stamp set and coloured them with PMs.  The bodies of the butterflies were created using some tiny sparkly gems and I added touches of Stardust Stickles on the wings to give a little subtle bling.

I added some 'Arty' effects to the photograph just for fun - hope you likey !!
