You are so incredible, Petra. LOVE the two stitched borders crossed like that instead of an ordinary bow, and the flourish and twin provide so much movement to your dear butterfly! As usual, your geometric background is so awesome against the nature elements. Hope you are doing well, and that Life is treating you excellently! love, de

Wow Petra, you really rocked this sketch! Must admit I looked at it and thought "crikey they really want a very CAS card"!!! Love what you've done with your card and those stitched edges for the bow/ribbon was an ingenious idea.

You sure do rock out sketches! I love the use of the twine -- I can never get mine to loop correctly. Is there a hint? Awesome card as usual!
