Butterfly.... and A for Archway

Mrs A's Butterfly challenge really taxed my brain this fortnight and I almost gave up but when sorting through some toppers I found one from The Hobby House and it has the required A for 'archway'.

I fussy cut the topper to show the archway off a bit better and layered it onto a Marianne Design 'circlet' die. The paper is from Prima 'fairy belle' collection and the ribbon. flowers. butterfly and silver peel-off corners are from my stash. I used a Sakura glitter glaze pen for highlighting on the topper.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterfly + A is for archway'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' die cut from a snippet of card
Allsorts challenge 'lots of layers'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'add flowers'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes' my 2nd entry
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'anything goes'
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge 'use patterned paper'
Scrap & Craft challenge 'butterflies'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'photo inspiration'

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you're all having a good start to the week. I'm off to sort out my unused stash for Darnell's super NBUS challenge which starts tomorrow... it's sure to be a lot of fun and she has some amazing sponsors lined up so why not pop over to have a look.

This is so cute and adorable! I almost gave up on this one too but came through at the 11th hour! I like toppers too - I don't always feel like colouring.

Sarn said...

Hi Andrea . . . LOVE the look of this gorgeous card. Very pretty and beautifully cut and coloured (sounding like a hairdresser now!).

There's a game of tag going on in the Playground . . . so you might have to run for it sharpish!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

This is precious. All teddy bears just melt my heart, but all your embellishment really helped to bring this couple to life. Just beautiful.

Di said...

Hi Andrea! Giggling here at Sarn's comment - did you run then?! I'm here really in my Cuttlebug Mania DT hat - absolutely gorgeous card! Such a sweet image and it makes a darling wedding card with the pretty flowers and butterfly. Perfect!

It just goes to show what you can unearth with a good rummage. This was well spotted and fits my archway requirement perfectly. I love your design. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge.
Hugs Mrs A.

I think she taxed us all with the arch Andrea, but this looks to fit the bill perfectly and it's just the sweetest image. Also perfect layers for Allsorts, thanks so much for joining in.
