Zig Zag Butterfly

Hello and thank you for your visit.

First I would like to give a warm welcome to Rachel and Lorraine who have just joined me here.  You may like to pay them a visit and share the lovely work they both make.

I've made my card today to enter into Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge where this time the theme is Z for Zig Zag with  butterflies.

I punched the butterfly onto the paper.  I don't know the make of the punch but it is one of those where the butterfly stays attached to the background.  I drew on the antennae and coloured clear gems with permanent markers then mounted onto a scrap of gold card then onto a piece of purple card.

The embossing folder is by Die'Sire and after embossing I used Distress Ink to colour it mauve.  This is the last piece of ribbon from the roll I've had for ages and I've only just realised that although the edge is gold for some reason it looks silver in my photo - oh well!  The tiny gold butterflies were punched from the scrap of gold backing card.

I'm going to put this card into The Snippets Playground Week 202 challenge now I've realised how many snippets I've used on this card.

Brilliant card Barb! Ha! I'd just thought earlier about using a zigzag embossing folder for Mrs A's challenge - oops, maybe too late though now :( And that fabby butterfly punch is also one of my very favourites, it's made by X-Cut. Great minds eh? :)

Hugs

Super card Barb, lovely colour combo, and the beautiful paper and ribbon. The chevron embossing is great and I love those tiny punched out butterflies, they are a much nicer shape than my punch.

This is super. I have one of those punches for making a flower but can't get on with it all. I love what you have done with your butterfly and the chevron embossing folder is a brilliant addition. Thankyou for fluttering by #42. Hugs Mrs A.
