Butterfly Bliss....

Hi Susan here....

Over at Daisy Doodles there is a new challenge and the theme is 'Anything Goes', how easy is that!! For full details of the challenge pop over to the Daisy Doodles Challenge Blog, the winner will receive a gift certificate to spend in the Daisy Doodle Store.

Now to my card...I have used an older sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, lovely shape. My backing paper is from an Artylicious CD called Damask Delights. I love this CD, you can make vintage cards so easy with these backing papers. All edges have been distressed.

All the pearls and lace are from my local market.

The poem I found myself in an old book of poetry, the digi image butterflies are in a set from Daisy Doodles Store called 'Dragonflies and Butterflies'. I copied the butterfly twice and flipped and resized one slightly before placing them on the edge of my oval frame. I have used Pro-Markers and chalks to colour them and then glittered the wings with stickles.

My flowers are from Hobby Craft and Wild Orchid Crafts and I have included little glass blossoms that I stole from Emma's cake decorating supplies!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
