Freshly made Sketches #330

 Morning folks!

It's time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches - it's my last card as guest designer for this month and I've so enjoyed being a temporary part of such a lovely team! Here's my card:

I smooshed a background with distress inks and gold embosssed MFT's Bundles of Blossoms background stamp over the top. The huge butterfly is a cut file from Silhouette - it took about 4 attempts to cut it as it's quite intricate and delicate. I do get really annoyed with my silhouette - I seem to waste so much card stock trying to work out which settings are best,  especially with the more intricate designs.

Make sure you go and say hi to everyone on the FMS Design Team won't you?
