Fluttering by with just a note

Back today as promised with the card made using leftover snippets

I've used a 4 x 6 inch deckled edge card base for this and the rest of the sheet of 'country diary of an Edwardian lady' paper from my last card which I matted onto a leftover bit of card. Mrs A's wants us to use M for music notes for her butterfly challenge which nearly had me stumped but after searching high and low I found this music stamp on the Clearly Besotted 'rockin robin' stamp set, which along with a Cheery Lynn die-cut butterfly means she hasn't got me beat and I'm able to join in the fun again. The sentiment is also Clearly Besotted and I used a QuicKutz nesting die-cut to stamp on. So there you have it - another very quick CAS card made in minutes and which does look better IRL than on the photo.

I've made this card for the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterflies + M is for music notes'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Less Is More challenge 'up, up and away' (the butterfly)
Allsorts challenge 'quick and simple does it' (my 2nd entry)

So that's it from me for today. It's pretty dull and chilly today so I'm off to have a crafty play while I'm in the mood. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you may be up to.
