Butterflies & Flowers


Whoohooo for Friday! I hope everyone had a lovely day yesterday, if not hopefully todays cards will brighten your day.

My first card uses a Sizzlets Leaf Die I have for a while now but never used - oops! I made a decision this year that if I have supplies I don't use often or are still brand new, I have sell them. This leaf die is too lovely so I had to get it used! 

I used a 1 3/4" circle punch & PTI Limitless Layers die to create the 'flower' which was stamped with the flower trio from BRIGHT Butterflies. 

For my next card I paired BRIGHT Butterflies with Pure Florals: Gerbera which go together so well, even if I do say so myself! Haha! 

I started out by stamping one of the Gerbera flowers on a soft stone base card in grey ink. I then created a frame by trimming a rectangle out of smokey shadow card & used my ruler & craft knife to cut out a smaller rectangle. 

Todays cards feature LOTS of pink, as I was Pinspired! Pinspired is a NEW challenge blog HERE.  I LOVE Pinterest as there is SO much inspiration & ideas over there that when I found this challenge blog that combines Pinterest with the love of paper crafts I had to play along!

They are only onto challenge #3 and below is the current Pinspired picture and you can also join in HERE...

Ok, so that's all from me today. Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by.
