Butterfly Kisses

Good morning!  It's a lovely day today!  We have a bonus weekend off this weekend (unheard of in the summer) and we saved our day off during the week so we could have a long weekend!  Yay!  My husband and I are off to Santorini for a mini vacation.  I really hope the hotel is nice... I'm always so disappointed with the Greek hotels...

Anyway, I have a simple card to share with you today using the Little Miss Muffet rubber stamp, Butterfly Kisses:



You probably can't tell, but I actually stamped her with a dark brown (sepia toned) ink instead of my usual black for a slightly softer look.  The extra butterflies come with this image.  She is coloured with copics and the papers are a mixture from my scrap stash.   The sentiment is a sticker from SRM and the corner embellies are from Make it Crafty.  I followed this weeks sketch at Feeling Sketchy:

Here's a close-up:

Copic colours used to be updated later...

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Feeling Sketchy: Week 15 sketch
Make it Monday: Linky Party

That's it from me today!  Don't forget to check out my teamies' fabulous creations for our new challenge that started today (Circles) on the challenge blog!

Ciao!

Lovely card Arabella. I love your colouring of the stamp, and I love how you have positioned her as it looks like she is sitting on the edge of the circle. Thanks for playing along again with us at Feeling Sketchy.

The soft colour stamp is definitely different - far softer - quite, quite gorgeous.

Just BTW... that tutu you sent our littlest faerie has gone down an absolute treat! She adores it and swans around the house pointing her little toes and twirling about.

Live IS good! I love how you added the pearls on the circles and that you have three butterflies on there - such a fun an simple layout but you've brought it to life! Love the chippie corners too. :D
