Lots to do - Butterflies and or insects

Here we are again another week-end, the last one before everyone is back at school after the summer holidays. Everyone is pretty much back at work now and the morning run will be busier than it has been for a while LOL. Time then for a new challenge at Lots to do and we are not relinquishing summer just yet, our theme this week is Butterflies and or Insects.

Remember the fabulous box Hilda sent to me recently? well it came wrapped in gorgeous mauve paper. Used this paper with TH cogs die and his flower die, then stamped the results with a large flower image in white red and green. Using a mauve ink the card edges were scrapped and the words were stamped then embossed with holographic ep. the felt butterflies are from Papermaina and their corrospanding stickly back gems made butterfly bodies.

Do please check out Lots to do to see Hilda's and Alisons great work and leave a link to yours.

  1. This is so pretty! These colors are perfect. I am just loving butterflies right now. I'm making a paper butterfly dress that I think would qualify...maybe I'll get it finished tomorrow. A week away from my studio and I'm chomping at the bit!
