Blue Butterfly





This card fits two challenges really well, the challenge at The Play Date Cafe ( which is always a colour challenge) is to use the colours black, white and either blue or green. I Love this Hero Arts butterfly stamp so much. I have paper pieced it, coated it with glossy accents and then sprinkled on some seed beads.



The card is embossed slightly at the edges.

The other challenge I am going to enter it for is the one on Lucys blog. It is to created a card that has been inspired by someone. Kathy has the most amazing blog and I am constantly inspired by her work and this is my interpretation of this card.

I am of to the Make-It fair in Farnborough tomorrow and I am so excited about it. This fair is held one a year and is the biggest craft fair in this area, I always look forward to going as there are always lots of stalls selling new products and also amazing demonstrations. I am sure to spend lots of money but its only once a year so it has to be done! LOL.

Hope you all have a fun weekend.
