A Mermaid and Some Butterflies

Just a couple of cards I made today to pass the time...

This first one is for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #141 No People Allowed, although mermaids were, which was good as I only have the jukebox and a Hallowe'en cat stamp that are not people and I was not in the mood to make a Hallowe'en card (not just yet!). This is also for Papertake Weekly's Challenge Spots 'n' Stripes.

My next card is for Make It Monday's Challenge #78 to use stitching on die cuts (I stitched the butterflies on to the card just down the middle, but added some extra stitching round the edge) and for Color Throwdown's Challenge #205 to use these gorgeous colours. I just had to use one of these big ole buttons though. I have a bag full of them in my drawers and I never use them so have to look for opportunities to get rid of them! I think the size of it fits with the size of the butterflies, so doesn't look too odd. What do you think?


And here's my card.

And that's all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
