Friday Sketchers

I've done something a little different with this card, what do you think?
Here is the sketch for the Friday Sketchers challenge blog.


And here is my card


I've used a digital scrapkit for this. I used the digi papers and elements to make the background using Photoshop. It is made by Studio Flergs and is called "Flairy Floss". I printed it off when I'd played around with it and then adhered it to a card blank. I then printed off one large,one small butterfly (from the same kit) and adhered them with 3D pads. The blooms in the bottom left were also done this way but I added a brad to the middle of them. I then printed off the tag and carefully cut around the swirly bits and the circle in the middle. I used a Gorjuss girl from Sugar Nellie to go in the middle. She has been stamped and then coloured in with promarkers and copics. I then used 3D pads again to adhere the tag to the card. Lastly I added the sentiment which is from Stampin Up.
It's easier for me to use digi kits at the moment as I am running out of papers and it costs quite a bit of postage for me to get papers sent from UK because of the weight. I'm hopefully (fingers crossed) going to the UK in July so I'll be able to stock up then but for now you may be seeing more cards made with digi papers.

Absolutely stunning Shary!The butterfliy is really striking and the gorjuss girl is beautifully coloured!I too find digi-kits very handy as the variety of papers in Ireland isn't great either.
