Happy Butterflies

It's Tuesday and time for another Twinkle Tuesday featuring a fabulous sketch by Madelynn!!
This week's sketch is wonderful - I think it can be interpreted in two different ways! I also looked up the Cuttlebug Challenge this week (did you know they have a whole blog devoted to using and loving your 'bug?) which was to sand your embossing. I used SU cardstock so it's really, I mean really hard to see the sanding. The color goes all the way through so it is slightly lighter IRL but I bet you can't see it here. The sentiment portion of the sketch gave me some problems. I tried several different things and it just looked 'funny'. I finally settled on just attaching them to the panel instead of "on" something like a tag, punch out, etc.... I've never been able to find those individual Making Memories letter stickers so I make my own. I guess it's more economical that way anyway! I also sponged the main image panel - I think this gives the look of another mat without the bulk. Wow - 2 ways to save money - I'll have to let hubby know that I'm working economically next time he seems surprised by the amount I spent at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc...
Be sure to check out the rest of the Twinkle Team (links over there --->) and see their take on this sketch. We all love the visits and the comments so be sure to let them know what you think!
We'd also love for you to join us this week! Link up your project over on Jessica's blog so we can all see it. You can also join us over on Paper Craft Planet; lots of chatter so come on over and join us!
Have a beautiful day girls!! Come back tomorrow for the Pink Papery Studios challenge; I've already seen several of the other gals work and they are super!!
I hope this card makes you smile. I think butterflies are such cool creatures! I can never look at one with out smiling.
Colors used: SU: Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery

Lovely card even though you can't see the sanding in the photo - subtle is sometimes good.
