Butterfly Garden - Again!

Happy Sunday! First Sunday of the month means a new theme at Penny Black and More challenge and this month it's all about Feminine Creations with an option of Anything Goes. Some great prizes are up for grabs again, hope you'll find some time to join us, and remember you may enter up to 3 times for more chances to win. This week we have prizes by Penny Black, Crafts U Love and a set of stamp and embossing folders. One of the winners could be YOU, but only if you join us :)

If this butterfly looks familiar to you, it's because I used it on this recent card. I just love the whimsical style and since the set is new to me, I had to play with it again :) It is from the Penny Black set Butterfly Garden

I stamped on Xpress It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo ink and colored with Copic markers. I think there is a matching die to this butterfly, but I don't have it and fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors. A clear Wink of Stella brush was used to add some sparkles. The circle was die cut and inked with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. The words behind the circle are from one of Whimsy Stamps retired stamp sets (Basic Backgrounds and Borders - I think) stamped with Memento ink again on Xpress It card. The leaves, flowers and "with love" sentiment are part of the Penny Black set Butterfly Garden and I inked the edges with Broken China Distress Ink. Distressed the edges before adhering to a white card base - Hero Arts Dove White 100lb.

I did end up cutting the antennaes off and hand drew them in on the yellow circle. As you can imagine that's easier to do than trying to fussy cut around them.

Another pretty creation using Butterfly Garden Ellie, I can see it's going to become a favourite of us both. The yellow base for the Butterfly really makes it jump from the card about to take flight.
