Butterfly Greetings






I hope you all had a good weekend ,the weather here is Tassie has been bitterly cold but lots of sun and blue skies ,just my kind of winter. We are still house hunting,the criteria is a large block of land with a smallish house and views of the river.Not to much to ask for lol ,it could take some time .


Papercraft Star -challenge 52 -Photo at top of post -I really struggled with this one.I love the colours but couldn't see any way to incorporate them,my only solution was the butterfly .

Card and a Half- Extra challenge 2 - Any sort of creature .

I used a post-it-note to mask the centre of the card and then stamped with the butterfly.The paper behind the tag is a peach and white gingham stamp with orange flowers.The butterfles I painted with water colours,tag sentiment is from VIBGYOR Crafts .

Great job using those photo inspiration colors Gail! They were kind of tough for me too, but you've created a lovely card. :-) You just can't go wrong with butterflies and the sentiment is beautiful. Thanks so much for joining our challenge this week at Papercraft Star!
