Butterflies on Monday

Why is the moment you photo a card you're really pleased with, it then goes all wishy washy, I suppose it could be the photographer.
This is my card for Sketch Saturday using the fab Cosmo Cricket papers and the sweet Sugar Nellie stamp one of my faves. The butterflies are Woodware and Martha Stewart with added gems for the bling factor.
I had to cheat a bit with the ribbon and the sentiment is from a new set I brought on Saturday not at The Craft barn but somehow on the way home we took a detour that took us pass the Glitter Pot, good job I had enough pennies left you can't visit without going home with a new Penny Black stamp to add to your collection, well I can't.

A fabby award from Karen whose been having PC probs but are now sorted.
I'm sorry I'm a bit behind on my visits to blogs, I really needed to get my Secret Project started my Hubby keeps reminding how many weeks I've got to finish it. So yesterday I spent the day getting stuck into it not quite halfway but really pleased with it so far.
