Snow day....

And wasn't I just mentioning yesterday how much I look forward to March because it means spring is coming? Hopefully this is Winters last hurrah before spring arrives.

Today's card was created for Heather's sketch on the EtsyInspired Challenges. This is based off a sketch that her daughter, Piper, drew up here. I partially cut a circle out of pattern paper, cutting around the flowers and leaves. I went back and added a bit of color with colored pencils. The butterfly is from Molly Stamp's Wings on Things (small). To mimic the diagonal lines on the sketch, I stitched embroidery floss, weaving it through the diagonals.



supplies used:
stamps: Molly Stamps-Wings on Things (small)
pattern paper: SEI
