ICSketches and an Altered Tin

This is the card I made for the Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge this week using this sketch by Dawn B:



I used the oh so sweet BG Lemonade papers and a sweet Sarah Kay image. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and distressed the background with Tattered Rose distress ink. The sentiment is from the new Magnolia Summer Kit and the the butterfly is a Studio G stamp (loooove my Studio G's!!).

I also altered a tin to go with this card:


Again, the sentiment and butterlflies are Studio G and I distressed the little tags with Tattered Rose distress ink. The blossoms are my favourite Prima's - Strawberry Hydrangea and the pearls are an ebay purchase.

And now that I've finally realised that today is Friday, and not Saturday as I thought.. I get an extra day this weekend!! lol.
