What is funnythough, is I used some of the retired stuff, go figure. Because I went to the Color Q Color Combo and I fell in love with it. Then went to in search for a sketch, and dropped in on Mery's, omgosh, fun. Then I thought maybe there was a few other challenges I could play with. Like at My Time to Craft is saying to use Butterflies, not hard to use, and Paper Take Weekly said to do a Garden Theme. Done did! So here is what I came up with, thanks for stopping by.
