This was the sketch..
And this is the card I came up with..
& a close up of those dinky little buttons and the gorgeous 'mottled effect' if thats what you would call it? butterflies..
This card originally started out in my mind as a Chrismas card, considering I was using Christmas patterned paper, it seemed like the right thing to do. But nothing is ever straight forward when crafting it is? :) Infact, I think I like the way it turned out better than I would of if I had made it into a Christmas card!!
