Since last October I've been bogged down with paperwork, forms and even more paperwork, and then just before Christmas my Mother-in-law was taken into hospital, and is still there. It looks as though it going to be a long recovery as well. This has left me little time to Craft, but today I decided that I was going to have a me day. So I got the stamps and inks out and had a play, I've even managed to get three challenges covered with this card.
I started with an 8x8 white card base, some pale peach centura pearl card and some backing paper from the Artylicious Butterfly Bliss CD. Before matting the backing paper I blended some Spiced Marmalade distress ink around the edges, and over stamped with the Leafy Branch stamp from Designs By Ryn, a very talented lady in Canada. Check out her website, she has some beautiful designs, and a very talented design team. After placing the backing onto the matting I added some ribbon, and flowers. The butterflies are from Chocolate Baroque, and are my all time favourite stamps, these were coloured with pro markers, then cut out. Before sticking them to the card I shaped them by hand, and added some feelers made with beading wire. I'll add a sentiment when I know who this will go to.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
