It's raining ...........



... So that means we/I can sneak off to our craft rooms again - this weeks' challenge at NZSU was to create something with a butterfly so I used one of my favourite Aussie bloggers Kirsty Brown as my inspiration - I just adore her work - think I need to add more layers to my projects to give them a bit more WOW.

I've made mine less complicated than Kirsty's but just adore the colours & the stamps she mixed so have used them for my card.

Stamp sets: Pocket Silhouettes, Butterly Prints, Flight of the Butterfly, Three Little Words
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, So Saffron
Paper: Kraft, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Regal Rose DSP (Patterns II - level 1 hostess gift)
Other: Butterfly punch, eyelet border punch, vintage brads, cutter tool, dimensional
