Unscripted Sketch #43

This is my first entry into an unscripted sketch challenge and it was a double whammy !
They piggy backed a colour combo onto the sketch.
I hope you like the outcome as much as I enjoyed creating it.
The base paper if quilted diamonds from Karen Foster design. On top of that I layered strips of a striped paper from K & Co and a darker green paper from a Brenda Pinnock kit I have. The chipboard swirls are made by Magenta and I left them bare for that shabby chic look.
Layered on top of the swirls are a flower, leaves and a butterfly that I cut out of somemore K & Co paper and I accented the butterfly with a couple of gems and a little wooden bead. I also gave the flower middles a little lift with my Spica glitter pens but not much as I wanted to maintain the shabby/grungy look.
I stamped "Mum" with my Love Elsie - Josie alphabet and the you're the best is from a Kelly panacci set. A button from doodlebug completes my card.
The vintage look is not usually my style but I thouroughly enjoyed this challenge - thanks Unscripted Sketches and thanks for looking x
