A Birthday Butterfly easel card.

Morning All.
Well I lost all track of time making this card ,I was so engrossed with it. I was in a world of my own(nothing new there!!) Absolute heaven!!Hubby had gone to watch Manu v Liverpool at Old Trafford and kids were happy,so off I went to play not having a clue what I was going to do.
Anyhow this is what emerged and yes another easel im afraid,although Ive never tried a Butterfly version.
I think I used just about everything from Nesties,cuttlebug folders,Martha Stewart punches and cuttlebug butterflies and basic grey papers and of course new Distress ink Victorian Velvet(Love love this colour!)Oh yes and two woodware punches for the flowers which I scrunched up and inked the edges with distress ink.












So thought I would enter a few Challenges


Magical Crafts Fortnight Challenge-Easter/Spring

Thankyou so much for taking time to look.

Bye for now
