Just Becuz...

I got this beautiful image from Saturated Canary called Violet, A Ragamuffin.  She's so cute & fun to color!  Not so fun to cut out though I found out.  It took me an hour & a half!  Ok, I was watching TV too. LOL Well, listening to it with the odd peek now & then. 

Anyways, I'm entering her into 2 challenges.  (I'm actually entering a card! giggle) So the first one is Sketch N Stash. They gave you a sketch...duh...but you also had to use something old from your stash.  You really have to look past all the embellies to actually see that I did in fact use the sketch.   Also you have to say what you used from your stash.  Oh where do I start!  LOL  I used some flowers, pearls, lace, & doohickeys (my sisters word) from my stash. There was also a few optional extras you could add just for fun that is actually posted on that blog.

I am also entering my card into the "Anything Goes" from Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  I love those ones because your options are endless.  If you have the imagination you can create it!  I think...LOL

OH AND, this is the first easel card I have made.  It did manage to f--- it up but was able to fix it so you'll never know. 

Enough of my for the sketch first & then my creation! 

 I crackled the butterfly & I also made the sproingy (can't find a better word)  things out of colored wire that I had from forever ago!  Pretty tricky hey? LOL
;;) batting eyelashes   
Thanks so much for lookin!

Creatively Yours, Simone
