My card for Feeling Sketchy Week 32

I made this card today for Feeling Sketchy Week 32
 This was the sketch
 and I rotated it to the right
I used Cuttlebug butterflies embossing folder, Bild Malarna stamp Little Winged Friends "Together", ribbon and butterfly diamontes.
The stamp is on an oval but my scan looks like a circle.
I am going to send this to a cyber friend on the Bear Lovers Stamping Yahoo group who lives in America for her birthday next week. 


  1. Lovely card Margaret I love embossed paper I might just have to invest in a cuttlebug machine if thats how to do it .I have trouble with the verification as well. Perhaps its because we are Grandma's.

    1. Thank you Pam. I have had my cuttlebug for a few years now. I have it out on the shelf as I use it nearly every day.
      My husband did make me a light box many years ago and I used to emboss with a stencil and stylus but my arthritis is too bad for that now and the cuttlebug makes it much easier.

  2. I love your card Margaret that image is so cute. I also struggle with the word verification they can be so hard to read sometimes.

  3. Hi Margaret, nice to see your work again. I hope all is well, love your card. Dani xoxo

  4. This is adorable Margaret (as always!) Love the purples! Thanks for playing at Feeling Sketchy this week!

  5. Margaret, this is another lovely card. Jumping into your conversation about embossing...I too love embossing and die looks so lovely. Thanks for joining in with us at Feeling Sketchy.
