Bronze spring butterflies

Good Morning All

Another day another card and a few thoughts 
from my jumbled mind. 

Here is the card for today - using the theme 
Butterflies - B is for bronze and or buttons.

I have used Hunkydory card stock which I have had in my 
box of "things" for ages and came across it yesterday when 
I was looking for something completely different. 

Bingo I know how to use that. 

Cut it down so that it fits onto a white card blank - which I coloured 
to blend into the theme.

Added bronze buttons to the edges again having to rummage in my
tub of candy buttons. 

Next came cutting out the butterflies from a spare bit of acetate sheet from another project
and mounting 
with 3D gel onto the card.

This close up shows the butterflies a bit better than the full length.

Added a sentiment from Craftwork cards. 

and here it is completed When the sunlight hits the card is shines
so lovely. All made with bibs and bobs from my stash.

Fantastic I have used up a few more bits. :) 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Where the Heart is - Anything goes

Thank you for popping in ....

I went into the garden yesterday and moved quite a lot of my
leaf mould onto the garden ready for digging in this weekend.

Boy I am aching today....but in a good way.

My heart aches though for all the problems which are
happening with my family - fall out. And I am
"piggy in the middle"

Powerless over People, Places and Things
I must remember this.

Well enough or it will drag me down

So I
Look forward to hearing from you again.

All your comments are much appreciated.

  1. Hi there dear Pen, love this card, just brilliant done
    I have made a card too, for the butterfly bronze challenge, but couldn't find my buttons, so I sent it off without any. So mine will just have bronze. Haven't blogged it yet. Better soon eh??
    Love seeing your steps.

  2. Beautiful card Pen - I'm still ruminating here over what to make :( Mrs A does come up with some corkers!!

    Keep your chin up over the family issues - remember, we choose our friends not our families. All will resolve in time with luck.
