Not A Christmas Card

I've finished my Christmas card makes for this year, so when I saw the current challenge over on the Butterfly Challenge blog this month, which is All Kinds Of Fairies, Elves, Gnomes and Pixies, I thought I would make something and join in. I've not taken part in this challenge before, I can't think why not, because I love butterflies and make quite a few cards featuring them. Anyway this morning after Hubby took our grandson off to visit his Great Granddad I got the inks and stamps out and made this card. All of the stamps I've used are from Lavinia and the background has been created using good old Distress Inks. Time to clear everything up now before they come home and want to know where lunch is.


I would also like to enter this card into the Fashionable Stamping Challenge, which at the moment is Anything Goes.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue

Hi Sue,
Welcome to my challenge. Thankyou for fluttering by. Hope to see you when the butterflies come back out to play too. his scene card is fabulous. I just love the Lavinia stamps and her wonderful tutorials have taught me a lot. Your background and hillocks are just right for these little fairies and I love your falling snow. hugs Mrs A.
