Butterfly Challenge

The current challenge over on the Butterfly Challenge blog is Matching Pairs and/or the colour of Orange Peel, I think I have managed both with this card. The card started of with the background which was made with an Obsession Impression cover a card stamp. I bought this stamp at the Newbury Show earlier this month, I stamped it out and coloured it in with no thoughts as to what I would do with the finished piece. I cut it down to get rid of the unfinished white bits and also to fit onto a 6x6x card base. I mounted onto some gold mirri card and found the ribbon, already tied into a bow (left over from another project that it didn't get used on) so popped that onto the bottom. The next logical step was to add a couple of butterflies, it was only then when looking at it that I realised that I had managed to fit the challenge without even trying. Just off now to join in.



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

  8. I love it when a plan comes unintentionally together. I love the flowery background which just suits that big orange chiffon bow perfectly. The butterflies are the icing on the cake. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden which is looking a tad weather beaten after the storms earlier in the week. hugs Mrs A.
