Pink Butterfly

Hello Everyone!!  Things have been crazy at the Jones house of late, not only is the Christmas season upon us, but for Australians, this is also the end of the school year - and with 3 kids, this means I run non-stop for a few weeks with little time for cardmaking.  I hope it settles down when school finishes next Friday!!  This is a card I made for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at SCS that I realised had not made it to my blog.  This one was hosted by Lydia and was to have a Pink Critter on it!!  Now I don't own a lot of 'critter' stamps, so a butterfly it is!!  :)

I've stamped both the flowers and butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24, G40, G82, R81, R83, R85).  The flowers were cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and framed with green cut with MFT's Dainty Doily Die.  The butterfly was cut out and offset.  Simply added some ivory ribbon, a bow and notched tag using a sentiment from JustRite's Just Because set.

Stamps - Butterflies and Blossoms (Flourishes), Just Because (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Green Bazzill, Chocolate chip, MME Sunshine DP 
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Large Circle Nestabilities, Dainty Doily Die (MFT), Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Scissors, Glue. 

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!!  :)
