Simply Magnolia a sketch challenge

Hello all! Gosh I feel so badly that I've not been a very good blogging friend. Seems as though I've been sick off and on for a few weeks. Finally I found out that it's not the flu but a blockage in the intestine. Good grief is that all I thought I was dying. heehee The worst part is I can't eat any solid foods OMG I'm going to wither away. Not fair!!!! No steak EEEEK I'm going through with drawls already. And that's one of the biggest problems is all that red meat that I love. Well it's broth soup, jello and Gatorade for a few days. So enough rambling about my woes and onto the important stuff...

This weeks challenge at Simply Magnolia is a sketch challenge. Unfortunately I didn't follow the sketch oopsi so sorry. And the sketch is so much prettier than my layout too, what the heck was I thinking???
I used Ballerina Tilda and colored her in using Distress Inks. Flowers are by Wild Orchids and the resin flowers are from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the smaller and larger butterfly's. I tucked a handmade stick pin behind the ribbon and flower. I used the romantic lace Doohicky by Magnolia which I kind of covered up, but you can see a few hearts peeking out. And I finished it off by scattering pearls here and there. 
I hope you will join us for this weeks Simply Magnolia sketch challenge. I look forward to seeing your creations using the sketch that I provided below.


I am submitting my card into the following challenges

Bonnie sorry to hear you have been under the weather. A blockage sounds painful and your diet sounds like you need to skip all the bland liquid junk and just have a Margarita...lol This card is just adorable. I love that sweet little ballerina and the pretty flowers. Hope you get well soon. Have missed you in blog land.

Carol
