Hello, everyone! I have been sick with the flu since last week but I'm starting to feel a bit better! I hope to be around to visit your blogs soon! I made a few cards for challenges that are soon ending so I need to get them posted! I have several cards to share today - this is the first of three blog posts!
This card was inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge
! The theme is P for paper piercing, along with the colour fern, plus butterflies. I googled the colour fern and there were several shades that qualified so I went with the colour you see here. I have been neglecting my butterflies for way too long, so thank you for inspiring me, Mrs. A!
Can you see my paper piercing? I haven't tried this technique in many years and since I've never been very good at it, I did just a bit in the lower corner.
All products used are listed below.
- Dies: Cheery Lynn Pair of Ferns, Marianne Designs Branch Forest, Memory Box Lunette Butterfly and Oriel Butterfly, Impression Obsession Butterfly Set
- Embossing folder: Leafy vines (unmarked)
- Patterned paper: K and Company
- Clear stamps: Sentiment (Clearly Besotted)
- Ink: Simon Says Stamp Willow
- Other: Flat-back pearls (Forever in Time), paper-piercing template (Stampin' Up)
I've used lots of leftovers/snippets for my die cuts, including some vellum and patterned paper, so I'll be joining Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 269/270
I would also like to support these fun challenges: Allsorts
