Crafty Catz #46 Does Butterflies & Buttons

Well good morning to you all it is Friday so time for another challenge over at Crafty Catz . Wow you sure liked the my theme last week Animals, we had another record up take and we had so much fun and learnt so much from hopping about your blogs.



Well this week it is Suzies turn to set the theme.
BUTTONS & BUTTERFLIES



So get your buttons out and all those Butterflies they make such lovely embellishments.



Our sponsor this week is Lilac & lemon designs the winner will receive 2 stamps.

Also there is chance of winning a GDT spot for 2 weeks.

For my card I picked a Penny Black looks like I am in the animal /bear mood again. I just love this set and although I am not the best at colouring Bears think i am getting a little better though the stamp is a dream to colour. The image has been coloured with my promarkers and lots of touches of glitter to this card on all the butterflies. The paper is from my stash the lighter paper is Laura Ashley and the darker is from a freebie pad from a mag. Used a few MS punches for the square and the butterflies. The strip of ribbon at the bottom of the card has some lovely pale lemon flowers on. Buttons are recycled from some clothing and some thread tied and glued to them. Flowers are from Hobby Craft. Sentimanet is also a freebie so sorry dont know the name.



Sorry lots of pictures trying to get the angle right for the glitter. Layout is from Papertake Weekly a simple but effective sketch which I am sure iI will use time and time again.








I am entering this card in to the following challenges


Wild Orchid - One for the girls


Just Cute Bears - Buttons & Blooms

Creative Inspirations Monday - Recycle ( buttons)

Every body art challenge - In the garden
