Long time no post

No post for over a week! Can't you tell I'm back at work?! Well, I have managed a Less is more card, and I am putting the finishing touches to a couple of card commissions, so I may manage two posts this week! Anyway, enough of my chatter. Here is my Less is More card where they have a sketch this week
I used a waltzing mouse stamp for the circular frame, an inkylicious stamp for the foliage and a Hero arts digi stamp for the butterfly, coloured with promarkers and a bit of glitter too. Yes, I have the butterfly in the wood mounted and the clear version, but wanted to be able to resize it so HAD to buy the digi too. I admit it. I have nearly as many butterflies as tree stamps!!!
I've just realised I haven't added a sentiment, but it is one layer except for the butterfly, so please let me know if it doesn't fit the criteria, Chrissie and Mandi and I will put one on. Thanks for another brilliant sketch - I normally don't like them, but this is just my style! Thanks also for the lovely comments from the lovely LIMettes. I will hopefully get round to visiting you over the week. Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally, blue and white always looks so crisp and clean - perfect for this CAS design. Love the placement of the butterfly, as if it's just about to take flight.
A really beautiful card.
Have a happy week - Sylvia xx

Gorgeous card Sally. ! I've just got those butterfly digis too.

It's disgusting the way school interferes with our card making isn't it, lol?

The colours are gorgeous with the softness of your butterfly colouring. The little bit of pinkiness just gives such 'oomph' to the whole & I love that neat double bordering of the foliage panel. Very eye-catching with real class & elegance.

This is so pretty Sally. I love the layered look you've achieved and the surprise of pink in the butterfly is inspired. Vicky x
