Butterfly

Hello,

I just had to take a break from wedding cards again and do something completely different so went back to a favourite MME pad to create this butterfly card.  I have distressed the edges of the DPs with sandpaper and added the stitching by hand.  Given how much I stitch on my cards I often wonder if I should get a sewing machine but I kind of like doing it by hand, usually in front of the TV 🙂

Card recipe;

DPs: MME Lost & Found 2 (Sunshine)

Butterflies: cut by hand with chalked edges

Label shape: cut with Cricut

Text: created in Word and printed

Pearls: Wild Orchid Crafts

I am entering the card in the following challenges;

1) Papertake Weekly (anything goes)

2) ABC (Surprise!)

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments,

Kat

Cheeky Geeky

Good morning all,

Yes, I know it’s a bit early but I have lots of chores to do today (mostly painting the spare room) so thought I would do something nice first 🙂  Plus I was dying to share my first card made with my new Cheeky Geeky stamp from The Greeting Farm which I fell in love with as soon as I saw it 😀  I have coloured the image with ProMarkers (apart from paper piecing the hairband) and used this lovely sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge;

So, here is my take on the sketch, which I have rotated 90 degrees to the left;

Card recipe;

 Stamp:  Cheeky Geeky(TGF), from Dies to Die For
