Butterfly Challenge

The Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is 'Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter L ~ Lavender, Lemon, Light Blue, Lace, Layers, Letters + a butterfly'.   Although the challenge is to use a butterfly and one or more of the colours or themes, this time I wanted to make a card with all seven elements.
I decided to use several of my neglected punches.  Anyone remember those days before dies were available and shapes were made with punches?  How things have moved on!   I made the panel by using an Xcut butterfly punch three times along a strip of white card.  I backed the panel with a strip of lavender card. I made the flowers with a flower and a circle punch, using all three colours of the challenge.  The two paper lace strips were punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The letters are Memory Box 'Upper Case Alphabet Soup' die cuts.  There are lots of layers on my card, so all seven elements included. Phew!

I am joining in the following challenges:

  1. Your card certainly packs a punch (ouch!). I have loads of border punches and just forget to use them. Truth be told they are in a box in the craft shed. I must go and search them out. I will make that my mission to make a card using some of them. Lol. I love this card Liz and well done for not only using your punches but all seven elements of the wheel too. Thankyou for playing along this week. hugs Mrs A.
