butterfly garden


I ran short of time making my Mother's Day card this year, so decided to do something a little different, instead of colouring up an image.

I'd just bought these gorgeous papers Pink Paislee ~ Butterfly Garden. I used the 6 x 6 version of the papers on this. They are so pretty!


I used a Tim Holtz ~Kraft Glassine Pocket on the front. I added a strip of patterned paper and stamped the flower image from the Pink Paislee ~ Butterfly Garden stamp collection using distress ink.

I added a Prima butterfly - I inked up the edges and added some stickles. Then I folded the flap of the pocket back on itself, spritzed it with glimmer mist and secured it with a brad.

I made a tag with some little handsewn buttons and added some lace.

 
I am going to pop this into the following challenges:

'flower palette inspiration photo': The Shabby Tearoom.
'Mum's the word': My Time To Craft.
'buttons, bling & bloom': Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.

Thank you for looking.
