Hi Lovelies,

Today I have two cards to share with you.  This first one is for Retro Sketches latest challenge.

As you can see I sort of deviated from the sketch a little.  I added the butterfly to the other side of the card (it's my heart from the sketch).  I really like the simple lines of this sketch & it helps that the pp are just so gorgeous.  I coloured the stamped butterfly in with Copics.

I just thought I would share this card as well.  It has nothing to do with the sketch.  I used the same paper range on this card as the first one.  It's called Botanical Odyssey by Kaisercraft.  The sentiment & flower are from the stamp set with the same name.  I love how Kaisercraft do this.  It makes putting cards together so easy.  As well as scrapbook pages.  I am going to be giving these to Barbi from Daisy Chain to display in her  shop to promote the range.

Thanks for stopping by & Happy crafting

Love your take on the sketch. Gorgeous.

I really like the second one too - love all the wonderful hearts surrounding the main image.

Gorgeous cards Paula! I love your take on the Retro sketch challenge! The KC papers look great but my NY resolution is not to buy any more 6x6 papers until my current stash is used up!
