Claudia's Butterflies

Hi everyone, welcome back...

I've had a lovely day out with my best friend Sue today....craft shopping...just for a change. I've spent the rest of my birthday money plus a bit more from my wonderful hubby Ted. I got various papers, embossing folders, stamps and bits and bobs which I'm sure will feature quite soon, in fact I've used one of my new backing papers for this card. I also got some of the Boofle stamps but I'm gonna have to practise with these so watch this space. I've made this card for my next door neighbour's birthday, which is on Sunday. I hope she likes it....

The image is a super digi from Pollycraft. I was lucky enough to win her a few weeks ago when one of my cards was picked as one of the favourites. The quality of the digi stamps is fantastic. I've coloured with promarkers and added glitter to both little butterflies and a gem to one of them. I was going to add tiny gems to the other little butterfly but the eyesight wasn't up to it.... I've cut the image with a spellbinder die. The backing paper is Daisy and Dandelion - Lovingly Yours. I've punched a lace border (Martha Stewart) and a butterfly and tropical flourish, both Cheery Lynn, from pink card which has a slight texture. I also added some ribbon and flowers from my stash.

 I would like to enter this into the following:-
Cheery Lynn - challenge 24
Whimsy Stamps - punches or dies
Fussy and Fancy - punches or dies
Polly Craft - Cute critters
Crop stop - paper lace

Thank you for visiting. I hope you like what you see. Thank you to those of you who are kind enough to leave me a message. I love to read them.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
