Butterfly card

Hi there friends, bit late with my 'Less is More' card this time, more about that later. Anyway here it is, they want us to 'Bring something back'. I used this very yellowing stamp set I bought years ago now.

I am ashamed to say I think I only used it once. I stamped it and watercoloured it and then covered it in pearls. I quite like these shades of pearls too, found in my stash from goodness knows where. I added a quick watercolour wash under my butterfly after cutting it out. I was going to add a sentiment too... then I is more after all ;)
My lovely FC teamie Cara is guesting over at 'LIM' this time too, do check out her gorgeous card!
A very big welcome to my latest follower too Mia, welcome aboard and thanks for choosing me to follow. xx

Ok come and have a peek at my card! sorry I am late leaving you all comments again but I have been unwell yet again. I fear I may have gallbladder trouble, waiting for a scan now. At least I have lost a stone already as I can eat very little atm. so swings and roundabouts eh!

Of course enjoy your weekend/week whatever you have planned ;)

The Flower Challenge #19 Reminder

Hi again, I am back with my DT reminder cards for 'The Flower Challenge'. Our theme this month is 'Shaped Cards', more info and examples on our blog. I made a couple of cards, on the first one I used an old digi image from Beccy's Place.

I was on Beccy's design team in the past and I love her digi stamps. I also added some ribbon for a change, who doesn't love a nice big bow !

I was in a 'Spring' mood making these so went with these bright fresh Spring colours. Anyway come and have a quick peek at my cards ;)

Thanks for visiting me and any comments you wish to leave and of course enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

I cut my shaped card then stamped and coloured my flower image.
I fussy cut my flowers, then added some sparkle using my
Diamond dust. I attached it to my card using 3d pads. 

Then I stamped my sentiment and die cut the two layers and 
added those to my card also. I used some chalk to add a bit of 
dimension to my sentiment layer and also highlighted the edges of
the die using my Promarker pen.

After tying my large bow I attached it to my card and my card
was complete.

I made my second card almost the same way apart from
not adding a bow and printing my digital pattern first this 
time. I printed and cut my card base, stamped, cut and coloured
my flowers and leaves. 

Stamped and cut my sentiment and 'stopper' die cut, then
added them all to my card. The heart frame die was added as
a bit of extra detail.

More chalking again on the sentiment part and then I added my
enamel dots.

You have until the 25th April to enter a card.
