Lilac Flutters

I have just completed some cards to send off to Jill (from The Stamp Man) using the new stamp sheets and I just had to share this sweet little card with you that I have just finished. It only measures 10x10cm but I really like making these tiny little cards as they look so sweet in real life.

The butterfly is from the Funky Frames stamp sheet (Don't forget to enter Jill's blog candy to stand a chance of winning this stamp sheet!! The link is on my sidebar.) and the wording and flourishes are from the Fancy Flourishes sheet.

The background is made up of layered stamping of the flourishes along with a strip of Basic Grey background paper and the butterflies were coloured with Coloursoft pencils, Sansador and paper stumps. All the materials are available from The Craft Barn and the stamps are of course available from both The Craft Barn and The Stamp Man. I hope you like it............ I like this one because it incorporates my favourite colour of lilac!! Funnily enough though most of the cards I have done this time I have striven to stay away from this colour as I thought that it would do me good to create some cards in other colours too!!

Kay it's gorgeous, I normally prefer to do A5 cards and 6" Square cards but I think I'll try some smaller ones.

Thanks Guys.

So glad you liked it. It is actually prettier in real life as when the light hits it you can see the crystal glitter glue that I added to the butterflies and the crystal embossing powder that I did the background with. Unfortunately the scanning didn't pick any of this up so it actually looks a bit flat in comparison.
