Butterfly Grid

I've just had no motivation to make cards lately - I'm beginning to think my real hobby is buying craft supplies rather than making actual cards!!

I was however very taken by this neat sketch at Freshly Made Sketches

I really love graphical symmetry like this - I struggle with strange lines in sketches! Here's my creation:

I got these butterfly stickers at a recent Ross Papercraft Show bargain bin and created the background using eau de nil dotted patterned paper from my stash. The greeting was created in Publisher using Newton Cursive font and I've added a few random flat-backed pearls.

I'm also entering this card into the challenges at:

My Time To Craft #393 - Mother's Day
Moving Along With The Times #93 - bugs
Krafty Chicks Challenge #447 - polka dots
