Make My Monday... Butterflies & Dragonflies

Butterflies and or Dragonflies... how nice is that... a lovely  theme for the last of 
 January's challenges at Make My Mondays   

 This is a very simple card using Stampendous Jumbo Rosehips, Lindsey Mason Tattered Butterfly the little sentiment is from Inkadinkado Special Thoughts.
 I stamped the butterflies with DI Vintage Photo onto card that had been sprayed,and swooshed with various colours of  Glimmer Mist and  Sticky fingers inks, cut out and adhered to butterflies that had been stamped and cut from cream card.

The rose hip image was stamped with the same ink directly onto the card then painted with the spray inks which I'd mixed  on a craft sheet, Whispers Strokes and Derwent Inktense pencils. then added a tiny amount of Glamour Dust to the flowers.

I used glossy accents on the little greeting then threaded onto natural, fine jute twine

Hope you like my butterfly card  don't forget to check out the DT's fabulous inspiration at 

 The standard of entry to last weeks challenge made life very difficult for the DT to choose just three..  again! so keep up the good work. There are some challenges to come that  you'll simply love.

 take care and enjoy your day

I loved your previous card Suzi but this one has even topped that! There's something magical about your butterflies and your colouring is superb. The little tag is the perfect way to add the sentiment too. Vicky x
