Hello! Its lovely to see you and thank you so much for your visit, I really appreciate it!
My card today is one I made for my friend Susan whose birthday is today - Happy Birthday Susan! I know she has received the card and likes it so it is safe to post it on my blog now.
I used 'that' embossing folder again! You know the one, it originally came free with a magazine but you can now buy it as it was so popular - I adore it! It seems to go with any embellishment at all. Susan loves the colour purple so all the embellishments and card base are different shades of purple. The solid part of the large butterfly is cut using the smallest die from Sizzix Bigz die Vintage Butterfly with the top layer being cut with Sizzix Thinlits die Intricate Vintage Butterfly. I used two different pieces of card that I had coloured with various shades of purple Distress Ink - one piece darker than the other, then spritzed with Glimmer Mist and glued together with Cosmic Shimmer PVA. The tiny butterflies are cut from the same card using Spellbinders Flutter Love and the Happy Birthday is also Spellbinders - Sentiments 3. I attached the embossed panel to a purple card blank then added the butterflies, sentiment and little purple gems for lots of bling, all with the Cosmic Shimmer glue.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Darnell's NBUS/Boo Boo Challenge - Use NBUS (never before used sctuff) and/or show some boo boo you have made. Mine is just NBUS - Both Sizzix dies used for my large butterfly.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.
Allsorts Challenge - Bring on the Bling.
Stamplorations - Things with Wings - its part of their fabulous Spring blog hop celebrations.
All of these are fabulous blogs and challenges!
Thank you again for visiting, I hope you are having a good week. Tomorrow my friend Julie is picking me up for a day at her house for a good catch up - lunch and a good natter - I am really looking forward to it!
Take care. Christine xxx
