More Butterflies!

There are quite a few challenges at the moment that are inspiring me to craft. I doubt I will get time to play along with them all. Today is a card I made that was inspired by combining 3 challenges.



I have again used my new Birthday Butterfly stamp from Happy Little Stampers. This time I embossed it on vellum-inspired by the 'Vellum' challenge at Just Us Girls. I then stamped it onto cork and fussy cut it out. I decided to do this after seeing the inspiration photo at Just Add Ink (see below)-I liked the earthy colours and textures in the photo. The lay out is from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch-I had forgotten I had this sweet embossing line. I will be using it more often as I think it is great for CAS designs.

Enjoy your day x
