Beautiful butterfly....

Good morning!

Oh boy did we have some rain over night, but the sun is shining now so all the plants are happy and so am I.

I had a play with a gorgeous butterfly digi last night and came up with this card. CAS yet it took ages to get the text boxes and image in a position I was happy with. I also wished I had had self adhesive gems to use too. So all in all a fiddly card but I am very happy with the result.......and I have my daughter's birthday card made well in advance for November! :0)

Have a great day & thanks for dropping by!

A bit more fruitiness

Rummaging through my stamp stash I came across a Penny Black clear set that I have had since Easter but have yet to introduce to ink....... my head is hung in shame!
These are such delightful images, how could I have left them sat on the shelf? Tut, tut.
Spotting a few blackberries on one of the images I just had to make another "fruity" card for this weeks
Less is More challenge.

My photography skills seem to be particularly challenged this morning and try as I might I just can't seem to get a true colour to my pic so it's the best of a bad lot I'm afraid.

Image ~ Penny Black Make a Wish clear set
Text ~ Hero Arts Thinking of you message set
Coloured with distress inks Victorian Velvet; Peeled Paint; Wild Honey & Vintage Photo plus a couple of colours from my old school Reeves watercolour set.
Glossy accent on the berries & rose hips
Glamour dust on the dandelion heads (think I preferred it without but it's too late now)

Less is More - Feeling Fruity
Papertake - Anything goes
Critter Challenge - Summer fun
Cute Card Thursday - No design papers
Colour Create challenge - Pink, green & white

Well the sun has returned and it's nice & warm down here today so I'm off for a swim & a snorkel with my OH this afternoon.

Thanks for visiting!
