Autumn Butterflies


Hi, I'm glad there's only one day left before the weekend, I'm planning on catching up on lots of cards I need to make. Oh and maybe a bit of housework might creep in!

I was inspired to make this card by the challenge at Scrapbook Boutique.
Here's the gorgeous inspiration pic. (There's a day or two left so if you live in Australia join in.)

Enter Our Challenge - starts 10th each month

I cut the Bailiwick die from some cream card and coloured it with a couple of brown distress inks. It looks like a rusty piece of ironwork in real life!


The challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More is to make your mark with pencils, markers etc.
 These are the last of my stash of butterflies that I had fussy cut and coloured with Inktense pencils. 

At Seize the Birthday its a birthday theme with a tags option. I cut a small tag and used a brad from my stash to fix it to the card.

Materials used:
Memory Box Bailiwick die; Hero Arts antique engravings butterfly stamps; distress inks; Inktense pencils;
sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
