Hi everyone,

Well, it has been quiet on my Blog lately I know.  I have been working on a batch of cards to take to the Summer Craft Fairs. Whilst doing this I decided to focus on a couple of challenges with a card, at the same time.  Why?  Well there are two lovely Challenges on the go at the moment with  and  with lovely themes.  So my focus was on Vintage, Spring Flowers and Butterflies.  Well don't we all love butterflies?  I know I do.  And as for the flowers, well it goes without saying for me!

BUT I got carried away!  Well there are no surprises there! lol  So I have made a card for each challenge.  Yes, that means you will get two postings in one day!  This is the first one.

This is what I came up with.  Actually, I delived into my box of die-cuts and hooked out ones I had not used for ages.  The die-cuts are made up of Tim Holtz on the edge butterflies die, a lovely Joy border die (which is just peeping through at the top there and a really old Marianne Creations corner die.  After inking all the edges I added Glitter paste (purchased locally)

The butterflies are made from a punch and then covered with glitter paste, very lightly.

You will see a little mixed media peeping through at the right side, this is a Tim Holtz Mixed Media die.  Again I have used the Glitter paste.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and also Live and Love Crafts, the image was from Cardmaker's Delights and everything else came from my stash.

I would like to enter this into the Challenge at We Love Vintage (Vintage and butterflies) 

Thanks for looking, I will be back very soon with my next one.
