Butterfly kisses x


Hello again I'm back with another (late) post this time to show you my DT card for the new challenge over at Creative cottage.

This fortnights theme has been chosen by the super talented Shelly and her challenge for us all is to use words of love. The sentiment must be the main focus of your card so you can put your image stamps away for this one !

For my card I have used the gorgeous butterfly paper from the lavender sky paper kit available at the creative cottage shop which seemed to match perfectly with the sentiment (raindrop echo designs).
I used my cuttlebug embossing folder to create the background - I have an absolute love of anything paisley, always have, I can remember a pair of huge wideleg trousers my best friend used to have, during our teenage years, which were covered in the most absurd paisley pattern ever and I used to go green with envy every time she wore them - ah good times !!!

Where was I - yes my card !! I also used the sketch over at Annabelle stamps - super sketch which I will def be using again.

Do you like the flowers - yes I made them all myself they are super easy and so satisfying to create with the added bonus that you can make them to match every project ! - if you want to have a go here is a link to a tutorial on you tube.

All that was needed was some extra bling and voila !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;
