Brushos and Butterflies.

Hi everyone, it's been a frantic couple of weeks lately.
All I wanted to do was relax and make a few cards but it's been a difficult time.

Anyway, I'm enjoying what I can when I can!

This background is a brushos scrap that has been sitting in my UFOs for a while. It looks a lot less green IRL!

The butterflies are stamped in versafine, clear embossed, fussycut and coloured with Inktense pencils. ( Colouring in is so therapeutic lol!)

I'm linking up to the butterflies challenge at CAS on Friday.

For your blog

At Simon Says Stamp Monday it's a tag it theme.

Your brusho background is so pretty. I love all the mixed colors in it. Sweet butterflies are enjoying it too! I hope things settle down for you and you can relax soon. It's hard when life gets in the way of crafting!
