Dutch Card Lovers...a card

I am not even Dutch...but I have some very good and kind blogging friends from the Netherlands and this sketch is from Cornelie, I was impressed with the sketch, with her card, with Jose's card and also Marjan...they are talented ladies and I don't compare, but it is always fun to get a reaction from them when I enter my card in one of their challenges!!  First, here is the sketch:  And go HERE and scroll down a bit to check out these awesome cards from the girls mentioned above!
As you can see, it has a lot of layers...and this does take thought, but I followed along and this is what I came up with:
 My background paper is from Memory Box:  brioche...and I used a Hero Arts Lattice background stamp over both sheets.  The butterfly die is one that Jose sent me for my that big butterfly and all its swirls, then I die cut a smaller Butterfly Dreams die from PTI and adhered it on top...the little sentiment which says: happy SUMMER is from Friendship Jar:  Summer...So how did I do girls??                                                                                               


  1. I think you did a great job! That background you created, the stamping. Nice border, and what a great butterfly!
