Butterfly Card

Hello there

Well it has been far too long since I have personally blogged,  but I have been keeping my eye on all the blogs I follow. Crafting mojo left my house for quite a while and I have missed making things and getting dirty fingers from all those inks and stuff. So I thought I would try and have a go at another craft challenge. My car had to go into the garage all day today, so perfect time to get all the bits and bobs out and make something.

The Fashionable Stamping challenge can be found if you click on the link bellow

I first saw over the challenge over on Paula's blog at  , she makes some stunning creations.

Challenge 13 is Butterflies or Bugs and the only rules as far as I can tell is you must use a stamp (no digis) in your creation. Its my first time entering fashionable stamping so here is my entry

I'm not sure what the stamp is, as I bought it when one of my crafting friends was selling off some of her huge stash.
I stamped it twice and then cut the butterfly out of one of the images. I coloured it with distress inks and then added glossy accents to the coloured bits. The background paper is from Making Memories and is 'Noir Floral Butterfly', you can see the reverse of the butterfly paper on the bottom of the card. It's a gorgeous paper and I used in in the project before last that I posted on here lol.
Some lace and maybe one too many flowers and there you have it, my butterfly or bugs challenge entry.
Thank you so much for coming over and having a peep, hopefully this has kick started the creative flow I have been missing
