3 Challenges 1 card

Hi there today's card i have decided to enter into 3 challenges.
Friday Sketchers , Penny Black Saturday , and Sir Stampalot Challenge.
I seemed to struggle with this card,
i spent all last night messing with it
nothing seemed to look right so i left it and went to bed.
This morning i was all for throwing it in the bin
but thinking about the hours i spent last night i didn't want to feel
like it was wasted so i added the purple card in the middle which made it look a bit better.
I think because the image is busy and with the flowery paper
it was to much so the purple card tones it down.

Anyway i have used the sketch over a Friday sketchers,
the penny black challenge was to use your punches
which i have with the flowers and the half circles,
and the Sir Stampalot theme was Blossom and Butterflies.

Image and sentiment are Tiny Wishes stamp set from penny black.
Butterfly stamp is Anita's
I have used copic markers pens and Glitter pens.
The DP is Gwenyth petite from paper adventures
woodware daisy punch and Martha Stewart deep edge daisy fan
ribbon and stick on gems.

Hope you have a good bank holiday

  4. Hi Angie

    I don't think it's too bust at all, in fact the DP matches the image beautifully, so it was probley as well you did'nt thow it because the purple card balances it perfectly.
