Yes more butterflies !!!

Hello I hope you are well x 

Today is Wednesday and Wednesday, of course, is the day that we set the new challenge over at MMCS challenge blog. This week we want you to Kraft it ! Yep just use kraft cardstock on your creation. This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Elizabeth Bell Designs.

I went again for CAS, and yes what a shock, butterflies !

I embossed my kraft cardstock using one of my sizzix texture plate and my bigshot and then added just a whisper of pink ink. The circular piece in the bottom corner was made by cutting strips from DP scraps and rearranging them to make a kind of bespoke DP all of my own ! I got the idea from this post here. After I had arranged the strips and stuck them down I die cut into a circle and adhered to my card corner and cut off the excess.

I added a circle "frame" cut with my compass cutter and added some layered butterflies (crealies creatables), lots of pearls and a heat embossed sentiment.

Don't forget to check out all the other DT cards and all the details of the new challenge over at MMCS challenge blog - I can't wait to see all your krafty projects this week x

Hey Suzie, your card is awesome, such beautiful details. I have this folder and hardly use it, I now see that it embosses beautifully on the Kraft paper, thanks :)S

Your bespoke is a great way to use up some scraps and makes a wonderful focal piece on your card! So happy you joined us this week at Shopping Our Stash!

What Paige said - great way to use scraps. I had no idea it was called a bespoke. I learn so much in the Blogoverse! :)
