My second post for today, if you're here for my Shabby Tea Room post scroll down. I'm a big fan of butterflies and I spotted a dedicated Butterfly Blog Linky Party at Eva Dobilas blog and I just had to play along. Who doesn't love butterflies. I've lots of work to do but when I feel like I'm loosing my mojo I make a card for fun... no pressure on what the end result looks like!!
The gorgeous butterfly die cut is from Marianne Design, I love it but it's a little tricky to remove from the die sometimes. The papers I used are from the Prima Melody collection. I added a little bit of bling to the centre.
For the sentiment from Frame-It by Waltzingmouse Stamps I layered up some of the sweet banners from Bitty Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps, I love the sweet polka dots!!
I layered pieces of soft turquoise and pink lace and threaded some buttons in similar tones on some natural twine.
For the panel at the bottom I used some of the pink paper from Prima Melody and embossed it with the Swiss dots embossing folder and lightly sanded the tops of the dots. I love this soft color combo!!
