Flowers and Butterflies

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good week and ready for the weekend. Fingers crossed the nice weather we're having will last.

I've a couple of cards to show you today and the first uses some more of those large roses I'm trying to use up. The image is from a LOTV art pad, the dies are Tim Holtz stitched rectangles, patterned paper may be from The Hobby House (but not certain) and I added gold peel-off corners and sentiment and a butterfly to finish.

 I shall enter this in the following challenges

In The Pink challenge 'flower power'

Deep Ocean challenge 'flowers everywhere'

And my second card uses a leftover paper which may be Hunkydory (but again not certain) with Marianne Design butterfly dies and a Tattered Lace happy birthday die. I added quite a lot of Stickles around the butterflies and it looks much better IRL than in the photo.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterflies + R for repeat and/or the colour night sky'

Double D challenge 'things that fly'

Thanks for popping by today and if you hadn't already heard the NBUS September / Boo Boo challenge is starting tomorrow over at Darnell's blog.

Two really pretty card, love the basket image and the stitched rectangles.
If you are anything like me, the minute you have used them all up, you will find you could do with using them on something, if you follow that.
