A new challenge and a Whoo Hoo!

Happy Wednesday Everyone !

I`ve been looking after Ruby for a couple of hours this morning, phew, you forget how tiring running about after toddlers is. She was as good as gold though I must admit. Her mum sent some alphabet flash cards so she show off how well she`s doing. Already she knows a,b,c and  d but gets confused after that but she`s learning her colours now and knows all the primary ones and purple. It just sounds so cute when she says them,not bad for only 22 months eh! 
Anyway, enough of me showing off, onto todays card.

I found a new (to me) challenge called  Our Creative Corner. which asks for a card showing what summer means to us. I had an urge to go back to a frilly over the top flowery card and so this is the result.

The DP is Papermanias Blueberry Hill.
I stamped a butterfly from Elusive Images and heat embossed with detail silver embossing powder.
Then I cut a circle around the butterfly with a spellbinders circle die. I then carefully cut round the butterfly wings with a craft knife so the wings would stand up.
I coloured the butterfly with H2O`s but I don`t think you can see the proper effect in the pic.
I then added some lace to the card some paper roses from a local haberdashery store and a large bow. The ribbon for the bow actually came free with a pair of pyjamas my MIL got me for Christmas.
Another large rose on the bow just to be fussy.

My very loud whoohoo is because I got an honourary mention in the Colour Throwdown challenge for my card (2 posts down). My whoohoo was even louder than it looks, I was  whooing and hooing like a daft kid but I`ve settled down now ( honest).

Just humour me! Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
