Just a note

Hi all....#1 post today. I was not feeling my best on Tuesday and I worked late last night trying to get these finished for today. I have first up my card for 2 Sketches 4 you. I have used the Junebug collection from Basicgrey. On this card I used fragments from Tim Holtz and I alcohol inked them then used a stamp to stamp on the other side and cut a butterfly to layer on top. I also wrapped the edges of the fragments in memory foil for a cool look! I hope you can see the detail always you can click on the pic and it will enlarge. Have a great weekend! I am going to enjoy the day! Having lunch with a back soon.
