Another sketch ... another Easter card

This is for Seems a little sketchy 7:

The background is a patterned card blank. The green paper with the edges distressed with bundled sage DI is from the Bitty scrap pad windswept. The flower, cross and dove stamps are from the PM moments of faith set, coloured with copics. The border across the card is some Tim Holtz tissue tape edged with some sticky green ribbon. I had to add a few pearls to the stamped image because I smudged some ink!

Why is it that the acetate butterfly looks more blue here than IRL and on here it looks as if you can see adhesive through the doiley, but not IRL (the camera seems to pick up things that don't normally show!).

This is also for:
