Soft Subtles and a Sketch


Today I had the day off!  It was a nice quiet day with no children and no hubby. I did a bit of unpacking and then decided to sit down in my new craft room and create.  This is what I came up with.  I used the sketch from this week's Pals Paper Arts, and I used the colours from Just Add Ink.  I also submitted this into the butterflies challenge at Less Is More.

I dusted off a set I haven't used in a while - Fabulous Friend.  I stamped the butterfly and the frame in each colour and then carefully cut them out.  I folded the butterflies and attached them in the middle.
