Butterfly and T...

Hi to you all, hope you've had a good weekend. Instead of housework (which will still be there tomorrow) I decided to have a crafty play and made a card which is a bit different from my normal style.

For her challenge Mrs A has given us T for talisman to go along with the butterfly this fortnight and this includes (after checking with her) any charm. I also wanted to combine some other challenges - floral and lots of pink, add a banner or flag, and also a sketch. The paper is a piece I printed off a year or so ago and never got around to using and at a guess I would think it's from one of my Joanna Sheen cds. I used a Clearly Besotted stamp for the sentiment, a Memory Box die for the foliage and snippets of paper to hand cut the banners. The flowers, charm, gems, ribbon and Hunkydory butterfly are from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~

Butterfly challenge 'butterfly and T for talisman'
Allsorts challenge 'add a banner or flag'
In the Pink challenge 'pink and floral'
Cardabilities challenge 'sketch'

  11. Andrea, this is so soft & beautiful with the pink & white stripes - and that absolutely lovely pink butterfly. I love it with the pink shades, and would never have thought to try this color with a b'fly. I certainlyl will now. He's just gorgeous perched on the lovely bouquet and the tiny birdcage Talisman is perfect with all the other elements. Marvelous work on this card. TFS
