Doilies and Butterflies

A fairly soft card from me for these challenges this time. This is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge  #247 for the sketch, Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #264 Butterfly Kisses, (So I just had to pull out my much loved Papillon Potpourri for it) and for ColourQ's Challenge #184 to use these colours. I have now officially used up all my big pieces of Going Gray and have just a couple of little scraps left. I don't have the Going Gray inkpad (it was never available over here in the UK, not sure about in the US), so I had to use Basic Gray and stamp it off to get a lighter impression and it worked fairly well.

And here's my card.


Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Papillon Potpourri, Curly Cute all from SU

Papers: Blushing Bride (Retired, but coming back soon), Going Gray (Retired), Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Blushing Bride (Retired, but coming back soon), Going Gray (Retired) all from SU

Accessories: Elegant Butterfly Punch, Finishing Touches Edgelits, Caramel Gingham Ribbon (Retired) all from SU

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
