Green butterflies on vellum tag

Hi everyone, the weekend is coming to a close here. I've had a good day though, did a bit of everything, baking, housework and crafting!

A couple of colleagues at work are leaving, so this is one of the cards I've made.

I stamped and fussy cut the butterflies and coloured them with inktense pencils.

The challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More is to make your mark.


At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is anything goes.

Darnell at DJKardkreations is hosting her 4th NBUS challenge, so unearth your never before used schtuff, (that you just had to have) and play along! My NBUS is the sentiment stamp from Mama Elephant. I got a few sets for my birthday but have not used them yet!

The green silk embroidery thread on this tag was a scrap that a friend from work gave me, It's a snippet so I'm visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
