Butterflies and Flowers

Evening everyone, hope the weekend is going well for you and that you're enjoying some good weather as I am.

My favourite crafting item has got to be my Grand Calibur and with all the fabulous dies on offer there is no end to what can be created, so when I saw on a couple of your blogs that Memory Box now has a challenge - shouts of yippee - I couldn't resist joining in. Also I was determined to get a card made for Mrs A's butterfly challenge as I missed the last couple (due to lack of sequins and doileys).

I was having a bit of difficulty in picking which of my dies to use when I found a sketch and it all fell into place.The background paper is a sheet I've had for sometime (can't remember where from) and the snippets are Dovecraft and My Minds Eye. I used Memory Box 'fresh foliage' and 'fancy blossoms' dies with a butterfly, pearls and rose organza ribbon from my stash.

and here it is with a bit more light on it

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterflies + F for flowers'
Memory Box challenge 'butterflies'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'your favourite crafting item'
Cardabilities challenge 'sketch'  and this is the sketch I followed 

I'm off now to have a bit of a crafty play. Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I so love these pastel colours together on your card. Beautiful butterfly and that sketch has really shown off the papers and dies well. Thankyou for fluttering by #33.
