Wish Big

Wow! It has been a while since I posted. My poor blog has been sadly neglected this year. I spent most of my time training for the Comrades which is a 90km run held here in South Africa. It was run 3 weeks ago and I managed to complete it in 10h16m. Hopefully I'll get some cardmaking done now during the winter.


I'm entering this card in a few challenges:
Case this Sketch #81
Less is More Week 177 (Watercolour)
Seize the Birthday (Anything goes)

I went along with the butterfly theme. I watercoloured some cardstock with distress inks and then diecut the 'base' of the butterfly from the watercoloured piece. I embossed the sentiment in gold.


  1. Me likey! Great butterfly and I love the varied colors of enjoy.

  2. I like your butterfly and color combo!

  3. Lovely card and a fab idea to die cut the watercolour panel

  4. I love all the components of this card ... very clever design.
    The twinkling watercolours of that butterfly just adds the right amount of sparkle.
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
