Sugar and Spice Butterfly

Another card today using 'old' stash - Dovecraft's Sugar and Spice paper collection which must be about 5 years old...

I used an aqua colored piece of A4 linen card for the base and added three strips of patterned paper from the pack.

I used a die-cut butterfly from a set of place cards I found in the wedding section of Home Bargains, which I coloured  using an aqua pro marker so it matched the base card. I then mounted this on die cut circles and added some flat-backed turquoise pearls as embellishments. The greeting was created in Publisher.

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Use Your Stuff #397 - flowers or butterflies
AAA Birthday Challenge #13 - things with wings
Paper Minutes #639 - butterflies
Allsorts Challenge #570 - butterflies
Friendship Challenge #53 - everything that can fly

Thanks for visiting and stay safe
