Let's See Some Pretty Papers

This week the Sassy Jackie picked the challenge theme on the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog and it's Pretty Papers. The DT created some majorly gorgeous creations.

You would think that with all the digital papers that I have on my computer, I'd be scratching my head with the dilemma of picking the ones I wanted to use. That, however, was not the case. I knew that I had to use these gorgeous papers from the Charming 10 kit by Shery K Designs. I love the elegance of the flowered background paper, in it's almost damask like look. As for the butterfly paper, what can I say, I love butterflies and these are some of my favorites.

I got the sketch from this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches, and just did a variation on it. Instead of pearls or beads, I used the punched out butterflies from my Memory Box die and raised them with foam dots.

I guess I must really love this image, as it's the same one that I used last week on my challenge card. It's Sassy Sally with Her Butterfly from the Sassy Cheryl's Store.  She's colored with Copics.

This time I colored 8 images and made 6 cards for my OWH box. I'll put the other two images on some card bases for a couple of more. Again I used my Silhouette Cameo to create my paper shapes, filled it with my patterned paper, printed it on my printer and then cut it with my Cameo. I had all the parts  done in less than an hour.
I really appreciate you stopping by for a look see.
