Butterfly and G

I'm here with my card for Mrs A's butterfly challenge and this fortnight she wants us to use the letter G for glitter and the colour grape. It's another quick and CAS make and I'm rather pleased with how it turned out - probably more because of the colours.

I used an image from the Joanna Sheen 'Pamela West collection volume 2 cd' and after a search through my snippets box found 2 pieces of Core'dinations cardstock - one just long enough to fit down the card and the other just enough to die-cut 2 Cheery Lynn butterflies. So that took care of the 'grape' and for the 'glitter' I added Stickles and gems on the butterflies. Finally I stamped the Clearly Besotted 'thank you' sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterfly and G for glitter and grape'

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'

CD Sunday challenge 'thank you'

Thanks for you continued visits and your lovely comment, they are all greatly appreciated.

Beautiful Irises Andrea and the little butterflies finish your card of perfectly. Had all intentions of getting both a snippet and butterfly entry done but my week had ideas of it's own.
