Less is More # 65 Sketch

Good Morning All!

This might be a very quick post from me `cos I`m in the loft and it` flippin` freezing up here. What has happened to spring?

This weeks challenge at Simply Less is More is a nice simple sketch. We have a choiceof two,


Since things have settled down with Ruby now that her operation is out of the way, my mojo seems to have done a bunk. This is the best I could come up with I`m afraid.
6x6 white card base. I cut a circle frame using two nestie circle dies, then cut another circle from a scrap of  rose pattered paper ( Papermania, Blueberry Hill). I placed the frame over the paper using foam pads.
I stamped a butterfly (Chocolate Baroque) and coloured it with markers then curled the wings with a bone folder and stuck it onto the paper with a tiny foam pad so the the wings just touched the sides of the frame.
The sentiment is from Flourishes Tag Lines.

Right that`s it from me. I`m off for a coffee before hypothermia sets in.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  12. This is absolutely beautiful, and easily my favourite of the LIM challenge entries I've seen so far. I really didn't like the sketch, and couldn't see how anyone could make something better than "nice" with it, but you have proved me 100% wrong! If this is you minus mojo..wow! M x
