Butterfly post

Hello and happy Tuesday - well why not ?!

Every week when I browse through the challenge blogs I like I always end up with at least 2 or 3 sketches and themes pinned to my task bar to remind me that I really want to play along. Most weeks I do not find the time to play along or by the time I get round to it - it's too late to participate !
So this week I was determined to play along with them and set myself some time last night to do just that. Let me tell you that I had an absolute ball playing with my crafty stash (some new stuff too !) I plugged in my head phones and there I was until after midnight !

But I got 2 cards made ... here is one of them.

This is a card that I made using the yummy sketch over at paper players this week

I have used some new papers from the Authentique splendid paper pad and a gorgeous stamp that I've had a while but only used once (!) I am not sure which brand it is - sorry.

The ribbon and lace is from stash as are my gems and the sentiment stamp is from Kanban.

I used my eyelet punch thingy (!) to create the stamp style edge to my stamped image - I like it and will def' try it again x

I would also like to add this card to the colour challenge over at My time made easy - I did sneak in a bit of pink - hope that's ok !
I'd also like to add it to the favourite things challenge over at Pollycraft - my favourites on this project are the gorgeous papers and of course butterflies !

Thanks for visiting today I hope you get some time to play with your crafty stash today - hey the ironing can wait !
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

PS Sorry about the weird angle this photo seems to have been taken at ! Not entirely sure what happened there !!
