Just fluttering by….

There’s another new challenge at  Digi Sketch Challenge and the theme this fortnight is Butterflies and/or Roses.We have the super The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Nonni’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used one of the images from Social Butterfly Printable Stamp Set by The Cutting Cafe and coloured it digitally to make it a pretty pink.You get so much in these sets – fabulous value for money 🙂 I’ve layered up some beautiful rose patterned paper,pink card and a crisp white embossed piece.Over that I’ve adhered a punched strip with Washi Tape added over the top.I fussy cut the butterfly including the inside of the wings to allow the underneath layers of the card to peek through and to give it some extra delicacy.I shaped it with my fingers for more dimension before attaching it to the card.I’ve arranged some square gems in the corners to balance the whole thing out.

Supplies :

Image : From Social Butterfly Printable Stamp Set by The Cutting Cafe
Paper & Card : DP  Papermania Vintage Notes 6 x 6 Linen Paper Pack,Pink & White card  from Kars Christmas Collection
