2 sketches 4 U challenge

Well here is my entry for this weeks 2 sketches 4 u challenge. I know it has taken me nearly a week to finish this entry, but for some unknown reason every time I finished a butterfly it seemed to fly away !? (2 culprits, Kelsey & Joe and neither know anything). Anyway for this card I decided to create an aperture card, firstly I layered on some water coloured paper that I won from Sammi as some blog candy (thanks Sammi), next I used my Cricut expression and the Accent Essentials cartridge I got to work, cut out the aperture in a scalloped circle, measure the center of the card and selected my "center" button and cut out a shadowed 9cm scalloped circle in multicut option 2 as I had 2 layers to cut through. Next I decided to cut French Filous Flowers (think that's what they are called?) option Accent 16 in the hand book! Coloured in the French things (?) with my orange souffle sakura pens then painted the whole image with my new cosmic shimmer (love these going to Belfast on Monday with Mum to buy some more). Next I stamped out 2 butterfly images, (sorry don't know the maker) one on white card and the second onto velum. Coloured the butterflies in using my souffle pens. Lastly for the sentiment I used a silver peel off and coloured in again using my souffle pens (didn't think this would work, but it did :-) So what do you think of the finished card? I quite impressed with it as I haven't used my stamps in ages and never tried my cricut before to create an aperture card. Hope you enjoy, any comments would be very much appreciated. xox Karen xox
