Butterflies Everywhere!


I didn't think I was going to get to this week's Sunny Challenge as I am a bit busy getting ready for ESAD UnConvention. It was also to make a child's card which I don't do very often. But my niece is turning 9 next week and so I wanted to make her a card. Talk about good timing!

Project Recipe
Stamp: Papillon Potpourri and Lacy & lovely
Card: Rose regal, pretty in pink, certainly celery (all retiring soon) and whisper white
Ink: rose regal
Accessories: honeycomb embossing folder, butterfly punch and self adhesive rhinestones

New Challenge

Someone on my demonstrator forum was asking about challenge blogs the other day and a whole heap were suggested for her to try. I thought I would try some myself as well. So this is from a bog called Dynamic Duos, each week they give two colours (plus a neutral) to use to create anything you like. Make sure you take a look at the other designs as they all look great.

Project Recipe
Stamp: Stippled Blossom
Ink: Baja breeze and daffodil delight
Card: Daffodil delight, baja breeze and whisper white
Accessories: Square lattice embossing folder, daffodil delight grosgrain ribbon (retired), large oval, wife oval and modern label punches.
