Fluttering by with Patterned Paper

If you're looking for my candy please check out the sticky post at the top of my blog or click here

I'm here with my card for Mrs A's Butterfly challenge. This fortnight we have the letter P for patterned paper + butterflies and I decided to try a new (for me) technique called camouflaged die-cuts. I saw this card over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop and it stuck in my mind as something to try so I went off and purchased some sticky sheets which I forgot all about sticking to the snippets of white card before cutting the Cheery Lynn butterfly layers! Luckily I remembered to add it to the LOTV patterned paper before cutting. I used a Marianne die to cut both edges of a strip of white card and added a snippet of the patterned paper along the middle with a sentiment, flowers and gems from my stash.

Thanks for popping by and please check out my candy before you leave.

A total hit with me Andrea, love Butterflies and all those pretty colours and the border is very effective as well.

Afraid I've not joined the Butterfly challenge foe a few weeks, everything I do craft wise seems to be engineered by C&C at the moment but I am hoping for some 'me' craft time this weekend with all my commitments done for a few days.

A total show stopper as in real life that is what the butterfly does to camouflage itself amongst the flowers. Beautifully executed. I love the paper you have used and those gorgeous flowers.
Thnkyou for fluttering by #26. hugs Mrs A.
