True Love Sweethearts

I am entering this card into several challenges

Sketch Saturday #115 - sketch by Emma
Flutter By Wednesday #117 - open challenge - must have something with wings
Crafty Creations #80 - winged things - the butterfly
Papertake Weekly - something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue - old ~ red paper, new ~ image
Digital Tuesday - Butterflies and/or lace - butterfly and lace punch
Incy Wincy Designs - It's a bugs life - butterfly
Craft Your Days Away #1 - Favourite Things - gold Sakura calligraphy pen

 I have kept this card CAS as I wanted the image to be the focal point (as usual with my cards, I would love to be able to put loads of flowers on as I think these look beautiful but it just isn't my style, funny isn't it).  I cut my circles out by hand (hence the wobbly edges) after I had drawn around a couple of tins (my Craftrobo is poorly).  The image is  by CJ at Cowgirl Up Designs and the sketch is a Sketch Saturday one.  I coloured the image with Copic Markers and edged everything with my Sakura gold calligraphy pen.

I will be back on Sunday with my DT posting for the Cowgirl Up Sunday Stamp'en Challenge.  This Sunday we have an inspirational photo, using ribbons and buttons but you still have a day to join in this weeks challenge which is a sketch by Andrea.

What a lovely CAS Card! Loads of 'stuff' on cards isn't my style either. I find it a bit overbearing and the eye has no place to rest. Thanks so much for playing the DTC this week.

Hi Poppet,
Sorry I've been MIA for a while!
I love this card, you've got a perfect balance.
The image is delightful and I'm very into CAS at the moment. But I find CAS cards much harder to make cause everything has to be spot on. No covering up with embellies!
You've mastered it perfectly.
Love Elaine xx
