Envelope Card and Chocolate Baroque

 Morning and welcome to my new follower KATHY  

Would also like to thank another blogging friend CAROL  for sending a beautiful thinking of you all card from NZ.

 Not made a criss cross/envelope card for quite a while so decided to make one for the challenge at Butterfly Spot-using an envelope card(two versions to choose from) add a butterfly and use light green/soft pink and pale cream think I covered everything.

The B.paper is K&C from the Dawn Bibby era at QVC many years ago,ribbon from stash,the Magnolia and Butterfly are both stampsfrom Chococlate Baroque.

The butterfly was stamped onto P.paper (twice and layered)from The Works-the Magnolia was watercoloured with Art By Marlene watercolours and cut with a Spellbinders frame.
