Butterfly Challenge 95

I made this card for the Butterfly Challenge which currently is P, giving the choice of three things beginning with P. I went with Patterned Paper, Pink and Pearls. The pattered paper comes from a pad that I bought many years ago, but being someone who just strokes their papers rather than use them, the pad is nearly unused. I decided that it was time to stop stock piling the papers and get on and use them. The die was from Crafters Companion, the sentiment from Chocolate Baroque, pearls from my stash and last of all the Butterflies were from a Tim Holtz set from Stampers Anonymous. I also used pink distress inks around the edges of the paper, die cut and to colour the butterflies.

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

I'm a stroker as well Sue, or is that hoarded ? Always love a Butterfly card and this looks very pretty in the soft pinks.

Paper but never uses it.

This is a gorgeous design paper Sue and I'm stoking the screen as I type!! I love the pink colours you have gone with for the rest of the card. I have one or two papers in my stash that I cannot bear to use or part with. Thankyou for spinning the butterfly wheel this week. Hugs Mrs A.
