Butterfly Challenge

Having had a spell where I've not made much in the way of cards, I've actually managed to produce two today and one of them is for the Butterfly Challenge where the theme is DIMENSION AND/OR DENIM.  I've used an embossing folder and dies which came free with a magazine recently because I thought I really should open the packet and try them.  I found a scrap of Tim Holtz paper which was a suitable colour for the background and the embossed card is also one of his - a whitewash card which has been lightly sanded to reveal the core after embossing.  The reverse of this card has also been used for the punched flowers (Stampin' Up punch).  I was going to schedule this post but as it doesn't always work for me and we are near the deadline I will post it today instead.


  1. Another stunner Val, you have been busy today, love the colours on this one too.

  3. Hi Val, Beautiful card, I love the colours. I too have not blogged much either these last few months. Hope your well. Hugs Rita xxx

  4. This is very pretty, what a lovely folder for free, and love the itty bitty flowers. You've made it pop by revealing the core xxx

  5. Love the effect with the sanded paper. I love getting freebies. Most of my papers are freebies. I do love a bargain. Your link was taking me back to the butterfly challenge so I went in my end and changed it to follow this post. Luckily I still had a link to your blog and glad I did as I wouldn't want to have missed this card.
    Thankyou for fluttering by. Your card will get entered twice for the prizes. Hugs Mrs a.
