Hi All

Wet and horrid day here so I've escaped to my crafty palace ... well cupboard; with a couple of cards to share that I made yesterday but didn't get to photograph until today. Apologies but the light is poor!

First up is a combined challenge make for Freshly Made Sketches, Color Throwdown and The Card Concept #7, where the theme is butterfly. I'd say I've used a clean and layered style on this occasion. You may not notice I've gone 'slightly' overboard on butterflies with these two but it did mean I got another little play with the Elegant Butterfly stamp set from Clearly Besotted that my kiddies treated me to for Mother's Day.


This used:

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Elegant Butterflies & Fabulous Fuchsias
             Uniko Studio - Flower Power 1
Papers: Doodlebug from Crafty Mojo plus Papermania
Pearls from my stash and a dusting with a Wink of Stella


Next up is to join in at Seize the Sketch and CAS Colours & Sketches.

This time I've used a Lili of the Valley pre-coloured image, papers from Pink Petticoat, sentiment from Uniko Studio - Flower Power and a butterfly die from Clearly besotted along with another dusting with a Wink of Stella and some gems from my stash.


Amazingly I've a couple more cards - obviously busy yesterday so I'll be back in a while.
