Butterflies and lace

I'm trying to use up some of my Graphic45 papers which I have been hoarding for ever, time to let go , G45 are reissuing some of their older collections, well  I still have lots of the original ones ! The ones I've used here are not too old, mostly Ladies Diary. The butterfly stamp is a Kaisercraft  pne, stamped and paper pieced. I originally started this card for Alphabet challenge but it seems to fit a few others too.

Alphabet  challenge - L is for Lace
Butterfly spot challenge - spots and stripes plus butterfly
Simon Says stamp - spots and dots
In the Pink - get well/thinking of you


  1. very beautiful and fantastic!

    Hugs and kisses from germany,

  2. I'm guilty of hoarding papers as well. This is a beautiful card, love the pieced butterflies as well.

  3. This is so pretty and would certainly brighten my day on receiving. So glad you decided to use some of your papers up. I'm a pink girly so these are perfect for me. Thank you for fluttering by my challenge. hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

  4. Love the G45 papers on this beautiful card. It looks very botanical & vintage and the striped peachy-color rectangle was a great design layout over the dots background. Love the way you've added the 2 butterflies borders. This Get Well is bound to be a hit with whomever receives it. Just became your newest follower and hope you'll find time to visit me too. Lovely to meet you at Mrs. A's. TFS

  6. Loving your vintaage take on this card, gorgeous papers, so hard to part with but with such wonderful results well worth it. Thanks for joining us for Lace at Alphabet Challenges. I see we are both entering into the Butterfly stop challenge. Caz

  7. I find it hard to use my papers too, but you have put yours to good use here. A lovely card. Kate x

  8. HI Joan, This is a beautiful card. Love the way you've combined these 2 paper pads and the stamping. It's so hard sometimes to cut into these papers, but we do buy them to use, just have to keep telling ourselves that!
    Anyhow, Thanks for sharing with us at Alphabet Challenge
