Harebells and Butterfly

Hello and thank you for visiting me today.

I wanted to make my card to enter into Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge #65  -      H is for Hoops/and or Harebells and everything came together quite quickly.

I had a piece of paper on my desk which after adding a little more blue was the colour.   I searched out a set of small flower stamps that I used to use for ATC and there it was - a tiny harebell stamp which I stamped randomly onto the background.

The "hoops" were die cut with the Sizzix Bright Bubbles die that I'd used for the first time yesterday when I had a little practise with it.

The Sentiment stamp is from a Hobby Arts set of sentiments and the butterfly from a sheet of 3D butterflies that have been in my stash for years.

I would also like to enter my card into the Challenge on The Allsorts Challenge blog - Week 386 where this time they are asking for Sparkle and Shine.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to capture either the sparkle or shine very well in this photograph.

  9. It's always hard to capture sparkle on photos Barb but I can imagine it IRL, a beautiful Butterfly and clever way of incorporating the hoops. Many thanks for joining in at Allsorts this week.
