Sunny Seville

Evening all.. 

What a beautiful day it's been here in my corner of Kent.. I had a nice pub lunch with hubby and then home for a bit of crafting.. aah..bliss! 

However, I am not choosing to share todays efforts with you yet! I made 5 Christmas Cards for a Chinese Whisper Christmas Card swap, so there's to be no sharing of them just yet!  Instead, I am sharing this LO that I made with my CKCB Kit, Summer Swansong. 

I used a sketch from Stuck?! Blog which is their September challenge sketch here: 

Now, normally, I would try to switch things up a bit and do something that resembles the sketch, but isn't a faithful replica.. but in this case, I rather like it as it is, so I have used it almost exactly as shown. 

There is one exception though! I chose to use one large photo cut into two rather than two smaller photos. The picture is of my sister when we visited Seville in 2000, celebrating my Mums 70th birthday. 

The papers I used were from a selection of scraps from Kaisercraft Hummingbird collection, with the exception of the spotty strip, which I found in a magazine. (I saved it long ago... and just knew it would come in handy one day!) I added a semi-circle of sequins and then added pearl dots as the body of the butterfiles finishing off with a trail of pale blue Stickles as the butterfly trail from the bottom left one. 

Anyways.. enough of my chatting.. here it is.. in all its glory! Hope you like! 

Do pop back soon for more fun and revelations! 

Have a good evening all!
