Butterflies

This is another card made with the inky papers I made with my new Colour Chemistry Inks, must try some of the other colours next.  The stamp is a Woodware one and the sentiment is a freebie Hot Off The Press. The butterflies were already fluttering around from a previous project.  Butterfly Spot challenge is for Butterflies and S is for sequins, I've never really thought about using sequins on cards before but believe me I have a box full, talk about being a hoarder, I've had them since my daughter did shows with her ballet school and I had to make her costumes, she is over 50 now !  Oh the nightmare of sewing them on, we were not allowed to glue them on, one year she was a Pearly King,can you believe how many pearly sequins I used .

Butterfly  Challenge S is for sequins and butterflies

  1. Hello Joan, got completely side tracked looking back over some of your other gorgeous cards. I really love the colours on this one. Been there/done that with the sequins on ballet costumes. I used to run a dancing school and we put shows on twice a year. 40 + costumes all requiring sequins. Oh the sore fingers!!!
    Thankyou for fluttering by #32. Please come again. hugs Mrs A.
