Fly --- Sketchy Thursdays 7.14 Sketch Challenge

Just a quick post here to share a layout I made using the current sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays.
I love this picture and am amazed that I was able to capture the butterfly.  It took a a lot of patience and several attempts.

I used my July kit from Artful Delight and ventured out of my comfort zone and used the Maya Road, Maya Mist in Earl Grey which was included in the kit.  I will have to admit that this was my first try at masking.  I was quite nervous that I might mess up, but am pleased with the outcome.
I punched out small scalloped circles to  make these pretty flowers.

I enterted a layout at Purple Pumpkin for a chance to be a guest designer.  I would love for you to head on over to their Facebook page and vote for me by clicking here.
Here is my entry:
All you need to do is "like" my picture.
Voting ends on July 27th.

It's been a hectic couple of weeks for me.  I've been occupied with taking care of my mother and have not had much free time.  I started last night trying to play catch up on everyone's blogs.  Be patient with me and I will be sure to stop by and pay you a visit.
Thanks for stopping by!

Your first attempt at masking turned out great- love the photo of the monarch how pretty. Love the colors on your layout also. Well enjoy the summer days as best as you can- there is always time for scrappin in the cooler months ahead, and hope your mother feels better.

Firstly I love the page you did for PP and super good luck with the Guest DT spot, and this layout is just stunning, so totally worth the patience it took to get this photo, the misting in black is just gorgeous, stunning page. Melxx
