Butterfly Birthday


I'm so sorry at the lack of posts here at the moment - I'm not gonna bore you with excuses but lets just say that life is VERY busy at the moment!

And just when I think I can see some free time with the half term approaching, I end up getting sick! I'm off work now feeling so groggy and curled up with just a laptop for company seeing as no-one will come within a mile of me! At least you can't get my germs via the internet so it hasn't stopped me being able to share a card with you today...

Admittedly this card was made a while ago, I'm still playing catch up uploading some I made ages ago! This one was a birthday card commissioned by a friend (and work colleague) and it needed to be pretty flat. If you recognise the butterflies stamped like this then you'll have seen it on Nichole Heady's blog with this card. I love the solid images overlapping and the effect of using alcohol markers directly onto kraft cardstock!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Ink: Fresh Snow/Dark Chocolate/Antique Linen Distress Ink
Cardstock: Kraft/Ripe Avocado
Paper: Bitty Box Basics Ripe Avocado
Accessories: Jute Ribbon Twine

Before I go for another honey and lemon, I just thought I'd share with you what the prize will be for our current challenge. If you fancy playing along you could win....

One sheet of each design from the Green Boutique pattern paper pad (6 sheets in total)


A whole roll of grosgrain ribbon in the delicious Hawaiian Shores colour!

I hope that gets you tempted to play along before our challenge ends on Monday!

Right I'm off to dose up on some medicine...bleurgh!
