Butterflies and Roses

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I forgot to tell you earlier that my lovely sweet little kitten Fluffy brought Rick and I a present yesterday evening.......... yes a live bird, I nearly had a heart attack, she didn't know what to do with it mind and was playing with this poor bird, so Rick picked it up and put it outside where it flew away.  Looks like she is going to take after her big sister.............. Tiggy only brings us dead mice and is disgusted with us when we put the poor thing in the bin....

Today's card is made for inspiration for the One Word Wonder which Lorraine and I won last night.  Lorraine's word was Seaside and mine was Purple.


Recipe

1. 8 x 8 square white card
2. I embossed purple card with Embossalicious Regal Frame, I cut around the flourishes and inserted purple polka dot paper through the cuts. I distressed around the embossed areas with Silver ink then matted and layered onto the base card.
3. The topper which is from Lelli-Bots I sprayed with Spray and Sparkle in silver and matted and layered with Foam Pads.
4. I added gems to the 3 corners and roses from Sweet Lilac to the 4th corner.
5. I made a bow and added a lilac dazzler tot he centre.
6. To finish off I added a sentiment and a Cherry Lynn Butterfly Die.

Thank you for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
Hugs xxxxx

Wow, This is stunning, I love the vibrant colours xxx

Fabulous rich colour and detail Linda. Our cats used to bring pressie in to. I think my husband would go mad now if a cat got his birds as he feeds vast amounts of them daily and we have had so many sweet fledglings visit this year.
