Butterfly Love


There are some gorgeous new digi printables at Pink Gem and I love to print them a bit smaller and use them as toppers but if you wish you can simply print them to fir your card blank or decoupage them with the extra sheets. This one is Purple Butterfly. The paper is First Edition Beyond the Shore. I used an old Marianne corner die and coloured it with DI Dusty Concord which really acentuates the embossed detail. The wooden cream butterfly is from The Works. I coloured it with purple Wink of Stella then let it dry slightly and pressed kitchen towel on it to remove some of the colour. The flowers are from Wild Orchid.

I would like to enter this into the anything goes challenge at Simon Says and The Ribbon Girl and flowers at Noor! Design UK.

We had a lovely Chinese meal on Friday night and the Kim Wilde concert was amazing. As I said it was hubby's choice but as I like her music I was happy to go.  The atmosphere was fantastic and by the last few songs everyone was on their feet. We came away with a real buzz and it was so nice to say at a Premier Inn rather than driving home afterwards in the dark.  Today hubby is off to Bedfordshire  volunteering driving a rescue boat for the powerboat racing.  After a few chores I have lots of crafting planned.
