Mother's Day butterfly

Hi everyone, the school holidays are coming to an end so I thought I'd better spend some more time in the craft room!

This is another butterfly diecut, covered in versamark, then embossed with aged taupe frantage enamel. I love this stuff and am keen to get more colours!

This fits a few challenge themes I think.

Simon Says Stamp Monday has a butterfly theme.

Simon Says Wednesday has a girlie theme.
 Butterflies and bling are my type of girlie card!

The Paper Players has a CAS butterfly theme.

CASology has Mum /Mom as the cue word.
I think this entry is more CAS than my last one.

Memory Box Lunette & Oriel butterfly dies: Stampendous aged taupe frantage enamel; vellum; Kaisercraft flourish embossing folder; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
