Paper take weekly challenge

One of the lovely ladies that run the Ribbon Girls online shop told me about this challenge blog. I have not taken part in a challenge for months and as I wanted to do a card anyway, I thought I would give it a go. The random winner will win £10 of goodies of their choice from the Ribbon Girls shop.

Here's my card. The stamp is from Crafty Individuals. I stamped it twice, cut out the butterflies and then glued them on top the first stamping for the  three D effect. I coloured them with Copics. Sorry the photos are really bad but I had to take them at night....

Oh this is so pretty Astrid, I love the papers and the 3D butterflies are beautiful!
Hope to be a better blogger when we get this new bedroom finished in a few more days, but too much work here at present to craft. Hugs Mau xx

This is really lovely Astrid. The colours are beautiful and I love the femininity of it, that wonderful shabby chic look! Butterflies always get my vote too .... eek, that's another stamp I have still uninked. Wish we lived close so we could have a play together, lol!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
