Flutterby Butterflies

Just a few butterfly cards I made this weekend. I do love my butterflies!

This first card is for Card Patterns Sketch #162 and CR84FN52 to use the colours below. I love these colours together (although I have no tan and went with kraft instead)! I did attempt to spritz my card base with my Vanilla Mist Smooch Spritz, but it all clogged up on me as I sprayed and splodged rather than spritzed, but I actually like the splodges on this one!


And here's my card.

My next card is for Friday Mashup's Challenge #55 for the sketch and to use the ghosting technique (I love this technique, but haven't used it in ages!), SUO Challenge #43 to use something retired (I used some retired DSP, ink and cardstock) and for Play Date CafĂ©'s Challenge #128 to use this fab bright combo.

Lots of the stamps on the SUO Challenge blog that are retiring are only just coming over here in our summer mini catalogue! Shame some of them retiring already as some of them are gorgeous!


And here's my card.

 And my final butterfly card is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #114 to CASE Jodene, Cupcake Craft Challenge #188 to use texture and depth (I used a chipboard butterfly) and for F4A113 to use at least 2 patterned papers. I CASEd this card by Jodene - I loved all the DSP and the pretty butterfly in the middle!

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