Freesia and Butterflies

Morning and a welcome to my new follower June,well can you believe there is only one more week left in this month???It has actually been hot here the last two days and Ellie and Holly spent two ours this after-noon with the hose pipe full blast and dancing on the trampoline soaking each other lol.On to my card we have a new ATG challenge starting at
A Inky Mess and we are sponsored by Sheepski Designs and I used the beautiful image
Freesia Vase,(my favourite flowers)coloured with promarkers,I folded old dictionary pages for the sides,top and bottom borders are embossed in gold with Crafters Companion texture stamp,the butterfly banners,chipboard and hessian butterflies are from stash,the corner dies/Whimsy Dies-strip and circle dies-Creative Dies were cut from card which I covered with left over acrylic paint -but didn't like result so cut dies from it -looks better that way lol.I used a black pen to draw lines between the banners -then regretted doing it but too late-I also distress inked all the edges.

Hi Carol, popping in with the answer to your question about which CD-Rom my bride image came from. It was a good job you asked this, I only have two Crafters Companion Christine Haworth CD's and I had put the wrong CD title in my post. It came from the Crisalis Classics CD. :)

Lovely textures in your banner flags, Carol! I especially like the tiny butterflies stamped ever so carefully on each flag! Beautiful card, and beautiful colors! Love that layering for the burlap butterfly, too! I always forget to use burlap, and it always gives wonderful texture to a card! Hugs, de
