Butterflies, butterflies, everywhere......

Welcome to my new follower, Liz McGuire of Buttons for Brains.  Please pop over to her blog to see her lovely creations.

I'm home from a few days in the beautiful Lake District, so I need to catch up on my blog visiting over the next few days.

I was lucky enough to win some lovely blog candy on Kath's blog recently, which included some fabulous butterfly papers and dies, which I've used on this card.
I used a Sizzix 'Circle Flip-Its #2' die for the base card.  The patterned paper is from a Wild Rose Studio 'Butterfly Glade' paper pack.  The tips of the butterfly wings on the paper are purple, although they don't show up very well in the photo. I used a scalloped circle die from the same set to die cut snippets of grey and purple card.  The butterfly is die cut with Poppystamps 'Elsa Butterfly' and 'Lyndon Butterfly' dies from snippets of white and purple card and finished off with tiny white pearls.

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


  1. Gorgeous card Liz, I love the paper and yes, I can see the purple wing tips, you've matched the colours perfectly

  2. A beautiful Butterfly creation Liz and perfect for our theme, many thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.

  3. Liz sent me this beautiful card to thank me for the blog candy - and the card is so much more beautiful in real life than shown in the photos. It's a lovely design and the colours and perfect for this bright card.
    Thanks Liz.
