Hello, once again I have been neglecting my blog lately, but today I have this card to show you. I made it for my sister's birthday but I also had in mind the Butterfly Challenge. This year Mrs A has changed the format slightly and now we have a choice colours and elements for the chosen letter.This time the the letter is P and the choice of colours are pink, peach and purple, and the elements are paper piecing, patterned paper and pearls. As you can see I have used one of the colours, pink, and two of the elements, patterned paper and pearls. The paper is from an old 6" pad from my stash and I trimmed it slightly to fit the front of my base card, and inked the edge lightly with a blue Distress ink before adding a piece of pale pink ribbon and lace and sticking it in place.The roses and leaves are stamped with an Altenew set of stamps. There are three separate stamps to make up each flower and leaf. I used several different makes of ink after rummaging through all my pads till found a colour combination that I liked.I'm afraid I don't know the name of the fancy circle die either, but I think it might be a Spellbinder one. The butterfly die and and the birthday greeting were in a freebie set with a recent magazine. The top layer of the butterfly is cut from a piece of the same backing paper, and the under layer was a piece of white card that I inked over with the mid shade of pink in the rose. I added some tiny pearls to finish. I apologise for the poor photo, it looks much prettier in reality.
Thank you for your visit here and for your comments which are really appreciated. I hope to be back in a day or two for the Rudolph Day Challenge. It's a short month this time so only a few days to take part.
