Butterfly Challenge #95

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.

First I would like to give a warm welcome to Brenda my new follower.  I hope you will visit her blog to see her lovely work.

 This is a  front fold card which was a pig to photograph because of both the shape and the lighting.  However I had fun making it this afternoon for
The Butterfly Challenge #95

I used paper from my stash and the stamps are from an Inky Doodles set.

I managed to use six of the elements - butterfly, patterned papers, pearls and all three colours.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to incorporate paper piecing.


I really like the new format of the Challenge that Mrs. A has set for this year.  It really made me think.  Last month I also managed 6 elements.  My personal challenge is to use 7 elements some time during the year....
