Cyan Butterfly

Good Evening and thank you for dropping by.

I 've not had much time for playing this week.  It's been a very busy one.

However I've not managed to join in with Mrs A recently so made this today for The Butterfly Challenge #64 C is for Checkered/and or Cyan.

Well I just went for Cyan this time using ribbon and small pieces of paper from my stash.

The piece of background embossing folder was in my bits box and the sentiment is from a Hobby Art set of sentiments.

The butterfly is a Sweet Dixie die which I bought at the craft show recently.  The die is just the fancy top piece so I drew round the die and cut the butterfly base from another part of the paper then punched out the little flowers and heart.

You wouldn't believe the trouble I had with placement of the sentiment but I hope it works where it ended up!

Tomorrow I'm off to a workshop with a friend at Loobi Crafts.  We're using Woodware stamps to make cards with different types of shoes.   In the evening it's the craft club in the chapel and so I'll be playing catch up again with visits.  Happy Crafting everyone.
