Butterfly kisses

Good morning - well it's Monday again - don't they come around far too fast ! 

I had a great crafty day on Saturday - one of those days when it all flows really nicely and I made 3 cards that I was really pleased with.
My 1st 2 cards were DT cards and you will have to wait to see those (!) but this card was inspired by the fabulous Case study card this week. 
When I saw the gorgeous card made by this month's muse Laurie Schmidlin I immediately thought of this DP that I have had ages. I'm not even sure what brand it is - sorry ! I love the country feel to it and wanted to keep it relatively simple with a sort of shabby feel to it.

I chopped a doily in half and stamped it with my butterfly garden clear stamps from pink paislee then added some stamping off the edge of the DP too (see top left side and top right corner). Then wrapped with some twill and topped with a bow & button combo. 
The butterflies are die cut with my crealie creative die and my cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder then inked them up with some worn lipstick distress ink. The sentiment is HOTP.

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

Case study - Fab inspiration card by Laurie Schmidlin
Catered crop - Use Kraft
Our creative corner - Butterflies

Thanks for visiting me today I hope you get some time to craft today x
