St Lukes Charity Card Challenge June...Come Fly With Me...

Helloooo it`s the 1st of June and that can only mean one thing....a brand new challenge at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge

This month we are asking you to make a card with the theme of flying...any style but include something that flies...Birds, Butterflies, Fairy, Angel, Plane, Hotair Balloon or even Pegasus!

Here is my make,

I have small confession to make. Because this is for such a worthy cause and because I`m on the DT, I wanred to make something a bit different. I wracked my brains but couldn`t come up with any inspiration at all and was getting a bit worried that I wouldn`t have anything to show. As late as yesterday morning I still hadn`t produced a card. While blog hopping during my morning coffee I logged onto Becca Feekans blog where she was showcasing THIS card and I just knew I had to case it.
Now mine is nowhere near as beautifully engineered as hers is, that girl must have a secret degree in engineering in my opinion as she can do the perfect mitred corners. But having said that, the end result is quite pleasing.

The base card is burgundy .
I used a Martha Stewart Trellis border punch and really used guess work for the sizing.
The butterfly is Elusive Images stamped onto dark red Vellum using clear ink and red EP.
The circle is cut out with a nestie. I`ve added some flat backed pearls the the body and also the 4 corners.

Don`t forget to join in with us at St Lukes . You`ve a whole month to get your entries in so there`s no pressure. Please visit the other DT members too and check out their awesome creations
