Butterfly Tag Card

I decided to have a break from making Christmas cards, although I've still got a lot to make!  I thought I'd go with shades of purple for this birthday card.
The tag is made with a Stampin Up Tag punch and I drew some faux stitching around the edge.  The stamp is from the Little Claire Butterfly Tree stamp set, one of my favourite sets of Little Claire stamps.  The butterflies were coloured in with Promarkers - Violet, Lavander, Lilac and Ivory, with a touch of sparkle added to the bodies with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.  The embossing folder came as a free gift with a magazine quite a while ago.  I've added tiny pearls to the centres of all the embossed flowers.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:


  1. A great card Liz, Both the embossed and the stamped butterflies are lovely and gorgeous colour too.

  2. This is just gorgeous,fab image and

  3. So pretty in all that purple! Love the tag on here and that image of the butterflies. Nothing prettier than a butterfly! Love your card.

  4. That is such a great idea to use the pearls on the flowers on the embossing. Makes the background really pop but does not detract from the centre piece being the Tag. I love those butterflies. Thankyou for fluttering by first into my #16. hugs Mrs A. butterfly challenge.

  5. Love the tiny tag on this lovely lavender butterfly background. How cool to match the embossing with your tag motif, and very clever to add the tiny pearls over this embossed background. The pearls really draw the eye in to see the embossed butterflies a bit closer. Cute card - perfect for the new Butterfly challenge. TFS & Hugs

  6. Being a true purple girl, I love this pretty card! The butterflies on the tag are colored beautifully and I love all the tiny pearl accents too!
