Glitter Butterfly


Hi, a while ago I made a card using the Penny Black Social Butterfly and I really liked the colours.
 So I thought I'd make another one. Disaster struck!! Once I colour my image I like to go around the edges with a black tombow to cover up the white card edge. I slipped and had a big black stripe on one of the wings! All that work fussycutting and colouring for nothing...I rescued the butterfly from the bin and chopped off the offending piece. It sort of looks as if I angled it this way on purpose heehee!

I'm going to enter a new challenge for me,  A Blog Named Hero, where the theme is All that Glitters.

My coloured card stock is snippets, in some ways so is the butterfly! So I'm entering the playground again at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. It's great fun, to play along you just need to use a scrap or snippet in your project.

I'm also entering the challenge at Make It Monday, where it's Anything Goes and the idea is to share and get inspiration from fellow card makers.

Materials used: PB Social Butterfly; Sizzix embossing folder; Tombows; Stickles; 

Thanks for visiting :)

  1. Wahoo Cathy - this is flipping brilliant! Looks as if you did that deliberately with the butterfly - if you hadn't 'fessed up we'd never have known! Very clever idea.

    Hugs, Di xx
