Flutterby butterfly

This weeks challenge over at easy craft projects is to use 6 - yes 6 patterened papers.

I was a little scared when I heard this as I usually use 2 or 3 tops on my cards and sometimes none at all but when I actually sat and thought about it I had loads of ideas.

What I love most about this card is that it uses some of my scraps and since my scraps drawer is bulging I think I'll make some more ! It was super simple to make and I love the girly prettiness of it.

Don't forget to hop over to the easy craft projects challenge blog for more inspiration from the rest of the DT and to get all the details then get crafty !

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

Simon says stamp
- Inspired by a song title (Butterfly - Corinne Bailey-Rae)

Papertake weekly challenge - Things with wings
Totally papercrafts - Clean & simple
Alphabet challenge blog - Q is for quick
Less is more - Anything CAS goes (will they reach 1000 ?)

Thanks for visiting me today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

Lovely butterflies! What a great way to use 6 different papers and still not overwhelm the card!

This is a perfect way to use 6 papers... I may even try to diminish my scrap stocks in a similar manner, it's a beautiful card!
