Butterflies & flowers

Back as I promised, with two cards this time.
I'm really glad that it takes a fraction of the time now to create a card, than it used to when I started a few months ago. I remember that back then I could spend even four hours fiddling with one card! (and in the end it it would look rather poor anyway :P)
If I were so sluggish still, I definitely wouldn't be able to keep up with all these wonderful and inspiring challenge blogs :)
This is the first of my quickies, that I made for Mojo Monday Week 109:


I did not hold on to the sketch too rigidly though... somehow when it comes to Mojo Monday's sketches, I always end up with a project more or less modified... *rolls eyes*
I coloured the butterfly with watercolour pencils, blended and glittered - and oh boy does it sparkle! Since I did so, I'm entering the card for "Bling It Somethings" at Stamp Something.

My next project uses the CPS 138 sketch from Card Positioning Systems:


I also used the colour scheme from OCC's recent challenge, which is: Soft suede, Handsome Hunter, Sage Shadow & Blush Blossom. Finally, the card goes for "F is for Flying" at ABC Challenge, and "It's So Distressing!" at Charisma Cards.

Hope you enjoyed, thank you for stopping by today!
