Simply Less is More # 143

Good afternoon All.
I hope I find you well. We are expecting a huge storm in the UK on Sunday night into monday morning, I really hope it`s not as bad as the weather man has threatened, and,if it is, I hope you all stay safe and well.
I`ve already told my boss that if it`s really bad, I`m not going in. Luckily I can make the time up :)
Well surprisingly I`m back with my entry for this weeks Simply Less is More challenge and it`s still only saturday woohoo!
The recipe for this weeks challenge is to use STRING orTWINE.

I was inspired to make the butterfly by a headband I put out at work last week. It had a beautiful glittered and bejewelled butterfly on it and, in true crafters style I immediately thought that it would look fab on a card.
So the next day I stamped a butterfly from Chocolate Baroque in clear ink and embossed it in silver EP then glittered it in two different silver glitters ( plain and holographic).
Once the glitter had dried I added some clear gems and Voila!

A close up of the butterfly. I should have taken a piccy of the original to compare really.
I used my Memory Box Circle Burst die on the front panel and backed it with some more of the two tone sparkly paper I found last week hidden away in a drawer, this time in pink.

This is what the paper looks like from another angle.
I was going to use pink Bakers Twine but I found some of this sparkly Craft Yarn so thought I`d use that instead. Hope that`s ok.
The sentiment is by Flourishes, stamped and embossed in Silver EP.
A quick, simple but effective card I think.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  5. Oh Wow! I adore this card - the sparkly pink behind the circle is so pretty! And I like the colour in the second view too!

  6. A really sweet card and very innovative.

  7. So beautiful Lynne! The butterfly is stunning. I probably would have bought the hairband just to take the butterfly off to use, lol!

    The wind has started here - I hate it!!
