Today's offering featuring beautiful 3D butterflies will hopefully encourage Springtime to make an appearance. We could all do with a little less wind, fewer grey skies and a big helping of sunshine to brighten up our days. Sadly, if the forecasters are correct, I fear we may have to rely on a good helping of imagination, at least for the next week or so. To compensate I thought I'd introduce a little warmth with these 2 pretty cards.
The patterned paper squares were snippets hiding at the bottom of my scraps box ... leftover from a previous project but I can't recall where I got them or who the designer is.
compliment the butterfly stickers beautifully and, once matted onto
slightly larger squares of black and gold, are the perfect size for the cream 5" square
hammered card blanks.
The sentiment stamp from Inkadinkadoo is mounted onto layers of card diecut with Spellbinder Nestabilities. Fancy-schmancy flourishes were created from Marianne Design Dies.
If I've read the rules properly, I can submit both cards to Flutter By Wednesday's Challenge # 236 this week as there's no prize on offer. In addition to the compulsory butterfly or fairy, they're looking for a sentiment ... got that covered.
The Wonderful Wings Challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is still open until Friday, so will sneak in a 2nd entry with one of these cards and as I've used leftover papers I thought I'd pop across to Pixie's Crafty Workshop to play for the 1st time in the Snippet's Challenge.
Finally for today, is another new one for me ... the Card Mania Challenge where they want entries with Diecuts or Punches.
