Sketch & Stash # 59

Whoo hooo!  I've got a week off!  hope to get plenty of crafting done too.  So I'm starting with this card that I've made using the sketch over at Sketch and Stash.  My new stash is the metallic mesh ribbon that I have made the butterflies with, I saw a lady demonstrating these at the show and just had to have some mine of course are not as good as hers but I really do like the effect and oh so simple just need a bit more practice.  There are a few different ways to use the mesh ribbon too!  My papers are from my scrap drawers so not sure what makes.  The adorable little image is from the Sugar 'n' Spice collection available at Charmed Cards and Crafts and is one of the pre coloured ones cut her out using a nestie, the sentiment is a freebie from Sentimental Sundays and that has been cut out using a new die from Nellies Multi Frames as are the corner decorations (again new stash!) I then just added some little multicoloured rhinestones to the frame.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Flutterby Wednesdays # 150 ~ soft pastel colours
Crafts and Me # 30 ~ Ribbon ~ my butterflies are made from mesh ribbon
Paper Sundaes # 64 ~ childhood memories
Sentimental Sundays # 50 ~ Treasured Moments
