Leafy Butterfly


Hi, thank goodness it's Friday again! We're going to an agricultural show tomorrow to buy some panels for cattle yards and some fencing pliers. Exciting stuff LOL!! So I thought I'd better get some card making in tonight.

I'm going to enter this into the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the code word is teenager.
I thought this would be a good card for a teenage girl, the butterfly has bling and the sentiment sticker is really glittery in real life.

At CAS-ual Fridays, the theme is Over the Edge. To make sure part of your project hangs over the edge of your card. I had to check the butterfly would still fit into a C6 envelope!

At Just Add Ink the challenge is to add leaves to your project.

Materials used: Penny Blabk Social Butterfly stamp; coloured with Tombows and black enamel accents; Memory Box leaves die: Couture Creations Entangle embossing folder; distress ink to colour the leaves;  bling & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
