Lots of butterflies!

Morning all!
I have a card that isn't a thank you card for a change!

I have used one of my all time favourite stamp sets, Papillon Potpourri for this card, stamping the butterflies onto vellum, in Pool Party and Midnight Muse. I also used one of the Best Of Butterflies as it goes with the Elegant Butterfly punch too.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Pairs and is also in Midnight Muse. The aperture was cut using the Chalk Talk Framelits. I think it really makes the sentiment stand out, don't you? I have CASEd the idea from Margaret and this card. It is something I have done in the past but sometimes you just need reminding of different techniques, especially when there really are so many out there!

Cardstock - Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Whisper White, Vellum
Stamps - Papillon Potpourri, Best Of Butterflies, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink - Midnight Muse, Pool Party
Tools - Simply Scored

If you would like to purchase any of the products I have used here, please do visit my online store where you will also be entered into this month's Mystery Hostess club for your chance to win this month's hostess freebies!

Alternatively, please feel free to contact me with your order, or any queries you may have. 

I am also starting a new Stampers 6 club in December, just in time for Christmas! So if you would like to build your Stampin' Up! stash in an affordable way, whilst still getting hostess benefits, then this is for you! 

Gift subscriptions to the club are now also available! You can purchase the 6 month membership for only £150, and I will send you a gift voucher and small gift to give to the recipient, and then all they have to do is send me their £25 order each month! And in one month from the six they will play 'hostess' and receive at least £25 of free products of their choosing! 
This really is a gift that keeps giving!

Right, school run, gym, church, then to take delivery of 5 very special handbags for some very lucky demos! You know who you are! ;)

  2. Such a lovely delicate take on the sketch (given that the original elements were gears!). Those butterfly images are beautiful, and the graceful curves of the cut-away sentiment panel and the subtle scoring support them perfectly. Thanks for linking up with Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge!
