Butterfly and Fuchsia

Hi everyone and thanks to you all for all your get well wishes for me and my Dad. The antibiotics have started to kick in and I even managed to make a card yesterday.

I've used another Clearly Besotted stamp which was a magazine freebie. The leaf is a solid die and I coloured the flowers with Promarkers and hand cut them before attaching with glue dots. Then I stamped the sentiment which is also Clearly Besotted and layered up onto some white card and then the 5 x 5 inch base card. The die-cut butterfly is from All Occasion Dies - it looks a little purple in the photo but is actually coloured with a fuchsia pink Promarker. I much prefer this card to my last post although those fuchsias did keep moving about before finally being stuck in place!




I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'F for fancy folds and fuchsia colour' (didn't manage the two this time)

Lawnscaping challenge 'beautiful florals' (2nd entry)

Noor Design UK challenge 'anything goes'

Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'green and pink'


Thanks for your continued visits and supportive comments. I'll hopefully start catching up with you all over the weekend.
