Butterfly Love & another Wedding card


Hi Lovelies,

Today I have two cards to share with you.  I was inspired by the lovely Dawn to to try a new challenge, over at Moxie Fab World.  I'm with Dawn I don't usually do their challenges as I too am daunted by so many fabulous stampers.  But any way here is my card.  
This one is using Echo Park Paper - Hello Spring.  Don't you just love the butterflies?  I know I do, so much so I just had to fussy cut them all out of the paper.  Not sure if you can see it (my photography isn't that good) but I've used Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish behind the butterflies with Versa mark ink.  The sentiment is by Kaisercraft & stamped with Versa Magic chalk ink in Turquoise Gem.  I made it as a potential "wedding card", but really it could be used for many other reasons.


This next card I made for my friend (yes I think I've officially gone overboard) to give her some more choices.  I've really enjoyed making these cards after such a long time of not making anything.  I used the latest Try Stamping on Tuesdays sketch.  Like all the wedding cards I've used the same papers, Twinkling H2Os, pears & ribbons.  I did add some different ribbon to the bottom of this card - just don't look to closely at it as it's so crooked!  I do have to thank the very lovely Jo from Dotty Pudding's Place, as the stamp I've used I won from a blog give away Jo had.

Well I'm off to make some more cards, hopefully........................

Hugs to you all & happy crafting
