A Slow Start

 I've found it difficult to get back into making any cards so far this year - inspiration seems to be sadly lacking.  My first card of 2023 has been made in response to the return of the Butterfly Challenge which has been on a short break - thought this might spark my mojo into action.  You can see all the details HERE .  I decided not to try the special card style but have used the flower theme; the colours of forest  green, flax and fuchsia as well as including some butterflies of course.  If you want to try the four-fold card there is a tutorial available on the challenge post.  I die cut a scalloped shape in white and stamped the wisteria flowers, followed by a little stencilling for added interest.; stamped and die cut the sentiment, finally adding butterflies cut using a die which also embosses (from Stampin' Up but is no longer available)

Flowers - Wisteria Wishes stamp set from Stampin' Up
Scalloped Shape - die from Stampin' Up (possibly retired)
Butterflies - Embossing die from way back Stampin' Up (long retired)
