Flowers and Butterflies

Hi everyone, just one more day to the weekend – Yah!


Just wanted to share with you a card I created with the following three challenges in mind:


  1. Paper Players Sketch challenge – #92 Sketch
  2. Simply Stampin Challenges – Colour - Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Soft Suede & Very Vanilla
  3. Sweet Stampin Challenges – Use more than 1 Ribbon


I have used Soft Suede for the base of my card with a layer of Marina Mist. The images and sentiment come from the Field Flowers stamp set.


I have not added ‘bling’ … but I have added some Pearls and they have been placed on the butterflies which have been embossed and cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die in the Big Shot.


As this stamp set is a two step stamping set I have used some Regal Rose to create the darker layer on my flowers but otherwise I have used only the colours in the challenge.


I have also changed the sketch a little but it is pretty close to the original layout.


Here is my card:









Stamp set: Field Flowers

Card: Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Soft Suede

Accessories:  Soft Suede Ribbon (retired), Chantilly Crochet Trim, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Pearls, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive

I am happy with the

Hope that you like the card and I hope to see you back again soon.





Until next time, take care and keep creating…… Meg
