Butterfly Birthday

 Morning and I have a birthday card I made for a neighbour who loves butterflies so I always make her one with added butterflies.The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque and I stamped the film strip twice then the film strip with the butterflies in the middle, I restamped the butterflies again,the first two were paper pieced on p,paper and the bottom one was colored with promarkers.The happy birthday sentiment is a Tonic die with the sentiment cut out of the same p,paper as the middle butterfly.

Surprise Fold lol

 Morning and we have a new ATG challenge today at The Crafty Addicts.Now this fold came about by accident---I mean how many diamond point cards have I made but this one I cut from the wrong corner??? I tucked the piece I cut off into the card and had a lightbulb moment as it looked fine lol.P.papers from Paper Favourites ,circle die from Creative Crafts and the rectangle one is a Penny Black Antique Frame. I found the sentiment in my sentiments jar and glued it on a piece of hessian.The flower images were die cut from the bonus page in the beautiful Watercolour Flowers paper pad  the 12"paper are so beautiful and double sided---so which to use??? Stupidly I only bought the one pad too!!!
