Butterfly Delight

Good morning crafty friends, followers and visitors

How are you all? Will you be getting crafty today?

If you missed my post about my new craft room and would like to see click here.

I have a parchment card to share with you today.  I haven't done parchment for quite some time and when Barbara Gray brought out the Groovi board I treated myself and finally managed to have a play.

I was very impressed and can see me doing more with this board.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square linen card and first layer is white card.
2. Using the Groovi board and the deckle edge around the edge of the parchment, for the centre I used the butterfly and then added the flowers around. I then cut out the parchment by pricking around the edge with my 2 prong tool then snipped out.
3. I turned the parchment over and coloured the butterfly and flowers with Spica glitter pens. I attached to the pink card with dragonfly and flower brads.
4. To finish off I added pink gems to the four corners.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
