Butterflies Galore

Good Afternoon
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

What has happened to this weather? gales, rain and cold. I thought summer
was on its way last week, how wrong can you be. I am sitting here and all the trees
at the back are blowing that much they look as if they will bend double. 
My poor rotary washing line is like a merry go round.

I hope things calm down a bit later.

Today's make is using a  digi image from Polka Doodles cd Eden.


1. Card base is 7 x 9.5 and has fancy edges. To this I added
a piece of white card that has been embossed.

2. The image was printed onto super smooth card and
coloured with Copic's pens, I then die cut it using
and oval die. Once cut I coloured the edges with 
Pan Pastels for a softer effect.

3. The butterfly frame was created by using a Tonic 
butterfly die and cutting it out five times out of
black shiny card then arranging them around the
image to form the frame. I am quite please with
the effect.

4. I added a black bow (make from the string wrapping that
oranges come in) and added a dazzler to the centre.

To complete I added the butterfly sentiment with love
to the top.

There you go, hope you like.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday and be careful if you are out and about.

Hope to be back tomorrow.
Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
