Shabby chic butterflies

Evening all

Sorry it's been a while....I have had a few problems with my blog since it has been automatically updated to the new interface.......mainly I can't find anything and go around endlessly in circles trying to find everything...grr.

That's it, moan over, now on to this post. It is a birthday card I made for my good pal and fellow crafter Sue.

I've used my fab card blank die from Go Kreate (I bought this about a year ago but they seem to have been discontinued) to cut the card base. The background is covered with a smudging (technical term) of Victorian Velvet distress ink (my latest fave colour) and then overstamped using the same ink and the papermania urban butterfly stamps. I've die-cut the lovely lace and lace butterfly using my fab new Cheery Lynn lacy butterfly and dancing doily border dies from Dies to Die for. I've inked vintage seam binding with the distress ink and tied a bow. A Woodware sentiment, cream pearls and hat pins complete the girlie vintage look.

Hope you like it!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Divas by Design challenge  - Monochromatic
Inky Impressions Challenge  - Use lots of ribbon
Oldie but a Goodie  - Die Cuts and Punches
Truly Scrumptious  - Distressing and Die Cuts
