Butterfly Tag card

Happy Sunday Everyone !

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend whatever you have been up to, it is lovely and sunny here which always helps the mood doesn't it :)

The card I have to share with you here I am really annoyed with myself about as I actually made it for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge #94 and then just haven't had chance to blog it so I missed the end date for the challenge Doh !
Still I thought I would share it anyway...especially since I managed to use all 7 elements from the wheel !

I used a pretty tag freebie digi stamp from Buddly Crafts which I printed onto cream hammered card and fussy cut out, I inked the edge of the tag and the sentiment with Distress ink 'Broken China' which I think is why in the photo it has taken on a bit of a greeny tinge but it is definitely cream lol.
I coloured the little butterflies on the tag with Promarkers and added some nail heads to a few of the wildflowers. I found a little offcut of red gingham ribbon in my drawer so used that for the top of the tag then used a little piece of twine to add a cute butterfly charm.

The sentiment is one of the new clear stamps from DSB and I die cut that with one of my new stitched circle dies. The blue and cream snippets of paper are from my bit box.
Butterflies were a magazine freebie die and the corners are Tattered Lace.

I'm off now to make a card for the new Challenge to make sure I get that one in on time !
I will also be catching up on all of your lovely blogs,

That's all for now,
Hugs, Kaz xxx

What a shame you missed the Butterfly Challenge deadline, especially as you managed all elements, but pleased you've still shared your card as it's beautiful. It's not too late to join in with the Crafty Calendar Challenge where the challenge is to use 2 or more layers. xx
