Hi everyone,


Back with a new card to share and I have taken inspiration from two challenges:





A sketch challenge from Just Us Girls













A sentiment challenge from Paper Players








A colour challenge from Meighan (LOL):


Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.



I used Night of Navy for the base of my card and then I added an embossed piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock.  The embossing folder used is the Elegant Lines textured impressions embossing folder.


The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings and Beautiful Butterflies Dies and I have used the Stampin’ Pastels Night of Navy to create a touch of shading on the two Very Vanilla butterflies.


I have used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out the large two circles.  The large circle is from a sheet of the Botanical Gazette DSP.





Stamp set: Perfect Punches

Card: Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Riding Hood Red

Accessories:  Botanical Gazette DSP, 3/8” (1cm) Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin‘ Pastels, Sticky Strip, Scallop Oval Extra-Large Punch, 1-3/8” x 5/8” (3.5 cm x 1.6 cm) Oval Large Punch, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Dies, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies, Basic Pearls, Elegant Lines Embossing Folders, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



I am really happy with the end result – what do you think? 


Please come back soon….. Meg x
