Flutter, flutter!

Hello friends

Firstly Hazel, hope you are feeling better,
migraines are horrible :( 

Today's card is channeling Spring, it is just a shame 
the weather has decided to go into reverse.
So much rain, Bella is tired of being dunked in the sink after every walk!
I know they say April showers but I think this is overstepping it a little.

So my Spring card, it features Botanical Butterfly cut from silver mirror card.
Am I coming to the end of my mirror card supply? Umm nearly!

The Botanical Butterfly die consists of 5 pieces,
outer wing, insert wing, body and antenna.

The delicate flowers and leaves cut into the wing looks beautiful.
This is what the designer Sharyn Sowell is so clever at, all the detail.

Hoping you can see from the photo that beforehand I used the outer wing die to
emboss only into the card mat to create an embossed shadow.

The flowers are from Bird on Cherry Branch, such adorable little flowers and
cute leaves - I think leaves can be 'cute'!?

I coloured the flowers (and one of the card mats to coordinate)
with Colour Cloud inks and the stamp is 
from Creative Expressions - Petite Lavish Sentiments.

Today's project used the following with clickable links:

Both a super price on the website :) 

Take care friends and please stop by tomorrow for Hump Day Giveaway.

Lovely card, so pretty. The insert wing could be used to make a complete flower which would make this Die really versatile.

Hi Christine, like everyone else a really dull dreary wet day here again. Typical as I have a cut and blow dry booked!! I think leaves can be called cute and the flower sprays go so well with the butterfly. Best wishes Jackie x
