Butterfly Sparkles

It's a cold, dark day here in the North East with patches of snow still on the ground. I've had a day off work today (even though I've worked at home for the last 10 months!) so I've made a huge beef casserole and some cards...

I was greatly inspired by the sketch at Fusion - I do like a simple sketch with no odd bits!

My colour scheme was easily sorted when I saw the challenge at As You Like It - favourite colour scheme and why...

I do love the look of pink and green together - it's a match made in nature - think of how many pink flowers there are! I prefer the more pastel shades which is what I have gone for in this card...

I used an ivory card base and created the greeting in Publisher using Splendid font. The die cut foiled butterfly and matching patterned papers came with a magazine years ago. I'd like to say they are Hunkydory but I can't be sure. I've added sparkling gems to make a 'trail' and to highlight some of the foiled dots on the butterfly. Simple but pretty.

I'm also playing along with the challenges at:

The Sisterhood of Crafters - use dies/embossing folders

Simply Create Too - favourite colour combo
