The perfect pear

Hello sweet peeps,

We are leaving for a vacation tomorrow and get back in the first week of July.
So before I go here is my card to show you for the sketch at CAS - colours and sketches.
The image is a rubber stamp from Hampton Art (coloured in with my Faber Castell water colours) and the lace is from my stash while the butterflies were added as a last minute resort to add more life. I have used liquid pearls in the centre of the butterflies to add life. 


I will enter enter this card in CAS on Sunday - black white and one more colour


I will see you all after our break and wish you a lovely summer full of peace and health.

Love,
Monica

Hello dear Monica, your cards are so beautiful. Each and everyone of them have a story to tell and you really do tell it so well. I adore these butterflies. The liquid pearl in the center is a brilliant idea - they do give them life; that extra lift! On top of the lace, they look fragile with perfection; ready to lift off. I love how you just whisk away with your variety of cards and the little bits and pieces that you add; very clever! I hope you enjoy your vacation, my friend - hope to see lots of photos when you return. Lots of hugs!!
