Hello Little Butterfly

Hello everyone! Finally I have another card to show you. I love butterflies, I love flowers and I love spring. What's not to love!!!


The flowers are hand-made. I know they don't look too realistic because IRL they wouldn't all be facing towards you and I should have buds towards the top--hey, I'm still learning...LOL. I've added bits of yellow glitter glue to the butterflies.


I made this card using this wonderful sketch from Totally Gorjuss Challenge 74.

Other challenges for this card:

Creatalicious Challenges - Challenge 20 is asking for 2 colours/tones. I've tried to restrict myself to using just blue and green only. Even all the DP's only have the blue and/or green colours. But I've got bits of yellow there for the butterfly and grey for the stones. White doesn't count, does it? Oh well...

Paper Sundaes - Challenge #63 - Spring Blossoms

Double Dutch - Challenge #65 - Something Old (my Chatterbox DP's now discontinued), Something New (Magnolia stamp), Something Borrowed (the sketch) and Something Blue (colour scheme)

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Flutter By Wednesday - Challenge #149 - Open

Simon Says Stamps - It's time for Spring colours/Easter

Dutch Dare Card - Challenge #107 - Spring Has Sprung

This adorable Tilda image is called Hello Little Butterfly from Magnolia's new Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. She is available from Magnolia-licious online store. The other images in that collection are just as adorable!!! Check the out! I have also used another stamp from that collection called Stone Pathway.

I've simply decorated the inside of my cards this way. I wanted to play around with the new Spellbinder dies I bought.



Thanks for taking the time to drop by. Your visit is very much appreciated. Have a wonderful weekend! Woo-hooo... I've got some gardening to do and then more crafting.
