Butterflies and Roses

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A very damp and wet day here this morning!  The rain is that horrible fine rain that soaks you to the skin.  
A good plan is to stay indoors and crafts!  What do you think?  Housework to get done first and then hi ho, hi ho it's off to the craft room I go.

Today's card is a commissioned card I made a couple of months ago but can now share as the lady in question has received it.


1. 8 x 8 white square card.
2. First layer Silver mirri card 
3. Using Jems Design Petals and Wings CD I printed out the backing paper and the topper which I have decoupaged and cut into the butterflies to give dimension.
4. I wrapped pink sparkle ribbon around and made a double bow and added a pearl gem to the centre.
5. To finish off I have added the sentiment, pearl butterfly, pearl heart and the numbers 50.

I would also like to share my good news too I won the Elisabeth Bell's June Challenge with this card.

That's it for today, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting.
