Thanks for your Waste Jacky!

Hello and thank you for visiting me.

A very quick post from me today as it's one of those weeks where I seem to be chasing my tail and getting nowhere.

  I'm sorry that I'm playing catch up again with my visits!!!

I like to join in with Mrs.A's Butterfly Challenge and although I made this card several weeks ago thought it fitted the requirements.

I have just gone for the colour this time not the edge but will try better next month Mrs. A, I promise.

My friend recently did a class with 20 very elderly ladies who haven't done crafting before so she prepared the class to make it as easy as she could for them to take home a finished card.

The green card was embossed and the ladies cut out their oval centres so Jacky gave me the green waste to make into cards for my charity box and this was one that I made.

I inked the inside of the scalloped ovals, added a diecut sentiment, a diecut butterfly and finished with glittery peel off strips that have been in my stash for years.

I would like to join in at the Butterfly Challenge #74 E for Edges /and or the colour Mint Green.
I have just used the colour mint green this time.
