Do you ever have one of those days when you just give up? We took my Dad on his weekly shopping trip this afternoon and he was not a happy man. He was having a good moan about having to pay tax on his works pension and that it's not worth being alive!! We'd just got him back home and his doorbell rang and there stood a nice fireman who said he could have smoke alarms 'free of charge' as he is 'old and vulnerable'. So while the other fireman was fitting 2 smoke alarms (under Dad's supervision of course) we were giving the necessary details. Okay his sight is not so perfect nor is his hearing and he can't run a marathon any more but he is 93 and totally with it mentally and would be able to react accordingly if there was a fire - so guess what happens next - yes, Dad starts playing the ancient befuddled geriatric who is on deaths door!!
Anyway enough of my waffle, here's my card. I used white linen card for the base and a snippet of Paper Cellar 'victorian classic' paper which I cut into 3 strips keeping the design in line. The butterfly is Hunkydory with Stickles added to the wings and placed on a Marianne LR0180 die circle. From my stash I added a pearl flourish and a peel-off sentiment. I think you can just about see the glittery wings in the photo.
I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge 'sketch'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'White + one'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Butterfly challenge 'Glamorous butterflies' (hope there's enough glitter)
CAS on Sunday challenge 'Sparkle and shimmer'

Crafty Catz challenge 'Anything goes' (my 3rd entry)
Thanks for dropping by and I'm sorry I've not been around to visit you so much recently but we still have limited internet. Just wish they'd hurry up and replace this cable.
