Less is More wk21 - sketch

Apologies if I make no sense - I'm just not with it today.  I've felt so ill the last couple of days, my head feels like it's been stuffed with cotton wool and all I want to do is sleep.  I didn't think I'd make anything today, but then I saw the latest Less is More challenge is a lovely simple sketch.  I thought I could manage that, but actually I've created the world's most boring card... honestly, it is...


The butterflies were cut with a Stampin' Up embosslit die, the gingham is some leftover Pink Petticoat paper I found in my scraps.  Pearls from my stash and the sentiment is a Little Claire stamp.

I'll hopefully be back later in the week with a more interesting version of the sketch!
