Polka Doodles Sketch Recipe Challenge

Morning folks, it's Friday again (don't know where the last week went!) so it's time for another challenge at Polka Doodles which has been set by our head doodler Nikky. Nikky has been very busy working on the new CD which is on Create and Craft TV on 20 September and she will also be at the Harrogate show over the weekend, so if you're lucky enough to be going do pop over and say hello to her.
Now, on to the challenge which is a sketch and a recipe - follow the sketch, add 3 brads and no fabric ribbon allowed.
I've rotated the sketch for my card so that the flap opens on the right hand side:
I've used papers and embellishments from the Paper Boutique CD, the Secret Garden and Floral Bouquet sections and printed out the blue scroll paper on both sides so that my opening flap had the design on the inside of the flap. I trimmed the edge with scallop scissors for a pretty finish.
I added a lovely butterfly from the Stampies section of the All Around & Everywhere CD and my 3 brads finished off the opening bar.
The rest of the DT have created some fabulous takes on the sketch, rotating it every which way, so if you're stuck for inspiration do take a look as it's easier than you might think.
I've got a very busy weekend ahead as I have to post off my samples for the fabulous new CD on Monday (I absolutely love this one which will be the most used ever for reasons which will become clear when you see what's on it!!!) and my daughter Claire is going back to Sheffield uni tomorrow and at this stage, I have no idea how all her stuff is going to fit in the car - she might have to sit on the roof!
Have a great weekend.

Hi Fliss, this is so beautiful. I could never follow sketches very well. I guess i am not that good at cards full stop but it doesnt stop me loving creative cards especially the gorgeous kind you make.
thanks also for stopping by Dezina and the faux stamps or digi stamps is the first set. I have another two coming up soon, clowns & a storytime one with alice in wonderland,cinderella etc.
Have a lovely weekend my friend
hugs June xxxx
