I missed out on joining in the fun with the Playmates last week so I was determined to get there early this week and I also wanted to have a play with a new die that I'd bought. I've had several butterfly dies but when I saw this Penny Black (set of 2 dies) in the sale and with free shipping I just had to buy it.
This card was one of those that just came about with no real planning apart from a few elements needed for challenge themes. The silver mirricard was a snippet and the embossed card I'd got leftover from another project was trimmed to fit, Then began my search for a butterfly sentiment and the only stamp I could find was a Clearly Besotted 'flutterby' which I stamped 3 times. I stuck the panel to a card base and then added the Penny Black butterfly die with a couple of silver gems added and made a bow with some silvery ribbon I found in my stash.
Of course it was a nightmare to photograph with the silver and white and this is the best I got
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Pixies' Snippets Playground 'use snippets'
Butterfly 'butterflies + Q is for quotes and/or quicksilver'
Cuttlebug Mania 'tic tac toe' (ribbon / die cuts / rhinestones using grand calibur and baby blue machines)
Crafty Ribbons 'anything goes with ribbon or lace'
The Ribbon Girl 'anything goes card'
Deep Ocean 'use die cuts or punches'
I also linked up to Just Keep On Creating where the theme is 'anything goes'
