Calla lilies and butterflies

Can you believe it - it's Christmas Eve tomorrow?  Hope everyone is ready for it :D

This is our last post before Christmas at Outlawz Sketch Challenge.  Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo giving a whopping $21 prize!

For my inspiration for you today I've got a non- Christmas card.  I've used Lily Trio which has been coloured with ProMarkers in very subtle coloured except the butterflies which I wanted to draw the eye in to look at.

I've taken a close up of a corner so you can see better what I've done.  The butterfly you can see where is a chipboard from Scrap and Craft.  I punched it out the coloured it with ProMarkers to match the image from Bugaboo.  You can also see a close up of the flowers I've used which are hortensias (Kort and Godt) from Live and Love Crafts.

This is out sketch for you today created by Sandra as you can see she's design it as a Christmas one but a most of us in the DT have produced non-christmas cards this time.

Here's my interpretation of the sketch today.  Instead of ribbon I've used some lace from my stash.  I used some chip board shapes at the top of my card from Dusty Attic.  I've then used three lots of flowers groups instead of three Christmas baubles.

Added to this are wood chip two butterflies as I described above.

The papers are from Lemon Craft and Lili of the Valley.

So that's it folks except we'd love to see you at the challenge and have a fantastic Christmas
