Green Butterflies

Hello and Welcome,

I'd like to start by welcoming  my two new followers
Jules from Always With a Heart  and Karen from Karen's Kreative Kards .  I hope you will be able pop over to visit them both.

I wanted to join in at the new Double D Challenge blog and this time the theme is Feeling Green.  I think I have just the thing.

I recently won one of the super little bags that Mrs A gives as prizes for her Butterfly Challenge.  As green is my favourite colour I chose the green option.

I don't know how Mrs A managed to cram so much into that lovely hessian bag but I was keen to use some of it.

I got out an old set of Hero Arts stamps and stamped and cut out the typewriter.

Everything else came in the bag.   I coloured in the green butterflies on the background paper with watered down orange from a Sakura Starlight pen then attached it to the front of my card and rounded one corner with a punch.

I shaped the little butterfly and stuck it on top with glue gel.  Isn't that ribbon lovely!

We're going out to dinner with six friends very soon.  I hope you enjoy your evening too.
