September's Challenge.... with Rachael

Well A BIG hello to you all!!
Rachael with you today..........
I'm here with this Months Challenge, My First EVER Challenge that I have had to set...
Also My first blog post for Stuff 2 Scrap..... 
I'm a little Excited!! hehehe
So first off! I would like to THANK everyone who played along with last months Challenge, which was set by the TALENTED Chantal...
We will post the Winner of this Challenge REAL soon!!!!

So on with my Challenge

My Stuff 2 Scrap Challenge for September IS

It can be a Layout / Card or OTP...
(with OTP you can take what inspires you from the Sketch & just let us know what it is)

The Sketch can be rotated, flipped or mix it up a little as long as it is recognisable....
Also I have a couple of extra criteria’s
1. Butterfly or Butterflies
2. Some stitching hand or Machine
3.Whilst Stuff 2 Scrap Chipboard would be Better  - Any chipboard is acceptable.....

Also it is Open to everyone!!

So this Is my Take on the Challenge...
As you can see I pretty much stuck with the Sketch

Chantal Wrote :
Something different for me. I've used your sketch (the circle has been done with paint (if you look closely lol). I've also added all the criteria there - I hand-drew butterflies and cut them out (massive ones lol), hand-stitched my own trim flower and my S2S chippie is the celtic heart which was actually painted on the front but I decided I liked the crappy underside with the random over-paint on it LMAO.

& Lastly is
It's OH SO Divine!!!
