Another One

When I saw the cards which Mrs A had made for the Butterfly Challenge I saw she'd used a die which at the time a few years ago I just had to have but to my shame it's not been used for simply ages.  Because I had a few scraps of the damson purple card left over from the card posted yesterday I searched out the die and some other bits and pieces to make another butterfly card.  The vertical element in this case is the panel on the left including said die.  Luckily I was able to find some toning pieces of paper in my bits boxes which I've used as background and also one layer of the two butterflies with the rest of the purple for the top layers and the sentiment.  I've even used a few pieces of the 'waste' from the trellis die as little added extras and some fairy dust for a bit of sparkle.  You have a couple of weeks to come up with something for the challenge and to be in the running for a lovely prize.

Tall die - Tessatina by Memory Box
Butterflies - Sizzix dies
Sentiment - Crafter's Companion die
Papers - oddments from the bits boxes


  1. The combination of colors and dies is just lovely on this card! I just love how the distressed panel coordinates so perfectly with the water-color look panel! Beautiful!
