New Butterfly Challenge!

There's a new challenge in blogland called Butterfly Challenge which has been started by one of the Playground friends - Mrs A.The first challenge is nice and easy -your card must have at least one flower and one butterfly. You'd think being so easy I could have made a card when the challenge opened two weeks ago. Well not quite I did make it last week and it was also for the Dynamic Duos challenge to use yellow and black.

That challenge is long over and I am only just managing to rush  in the door before Mrs A's challenge closes.  I seemed to get a tad busy towards the end of last week!  Anyway my card is quite simple and not quite how it looked in my head!! I cut a mask with the oval framelits to make an oval aperture and then brayered Daffodil Delight in the oval. But it came out very pale and no matter how much ink I added couldn't seem to get it any brighter. Then I stamped the flower from Serene Silhouettes in black and the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri. I added some more yellow to the butterfly with the matching marker, some tiny jewels down it's body plus some more in the corners. I was going to add an acetate butterfly over the top but the ink didn't want to dry and the acetate wasn't heat resistant I discovered!!

I've just noticed I have a new follower as well - welcome Shirley.

You can order from my online shop at anytime  or email  if you prefer the personal touch .


  1. Beautiful Sue. Your oval colour is showing up the same as the backing card colour on my screen so looks perfect. Didn't need the extra layer for the butterfly either. Glad you managed to flutter by in time for my new venture. hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

  2. Love butterflies and this card. Beautiful job.

  3. This is beautiful, Sue! Love the yellow sponging with the black silhouette and the matching butterfly!

  4. Beautiful design Sue.

    Hugs Diane

  5. I think it's CAS perfection, Sue! I just love how soft it is, yet still striking with the black image and mat! Love it!! Love your Male Room cards, too!! (Sorry I've been such a bad bloggie friend and not been around for a visit lately!) Hugs, Darnell
