I been playing again...

Hello There

You recall I made a pink card HERE a short while ago?  Well I could not help thinking a green one would look kinda good.  Well, here it is........

 
I used DIs in Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed and Forest moss, spritz and flick technique (my favourite with DIs) and TH stamp Papillon with Memento ink. I then cut a Butterfly using MB die and stamped it with TH crackle stamp.  Some pearls, and HB stamped with Penny Black stamp, before chomping the corners.  As usual I cut the strips from Snippets and yes, I ironed the strip to flatten it before stamping it!!!! And tonight I earned my halo by carrying out all my ironing! 

Thank you Jenny for becoming my newest follower.  

I am taking this card to the Snippets Playground.  My white and card Snippets drawer is reducing nicely now.  Woohoo!  I just found out my number came up in the draw!!  I will at last get my hand on some stickeroos from Penny Black.  Not seen them before and Miss is sooooo good at usin them.  Thank you Miss.

As I used Mustard Seed DI in there I am going to try and sneak it into Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge - use Yellow! 

Thanks for popping over.  Have a great week.

Oh dear, I am having a nightmare on blogger at the moment, all these Butterflies and fairies, all totally out of my comfort zone, as I a certain some of my cards are to others.
But that does not mean I cannot appreciate a great creation when I see one, and this is a great creation, love the colours and the layout of the card.

I thought your pink card was wonderful but I've got to say, it's even better in green! Congratulations on your win! Thanks for the push....

This is just as lovely in Green! Love the pretty inkyness of it and that you ironed it...teehee I can see the yellow...so think it is safe for the butterfly challenge.

PS At least you got your ironing caught up!!!

Hello Sam, loved your pink card, but this card is wonderful. The different butterflies are brilliant, and the addition of pearls is the perfect finish.
Well done catching up with your ironing.

I have blown your picky up and checked the catalogue and the jury has been out and reached a decision. Yes you do pass mustard!! Love all those butterflies. They look really stiking in the black against the vibrant background.
Thank you for fluttering into #4. hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

Aha, a twist on the pink card! I do love this butterfly card but am biased as the pink one is proudly pegged on my new little notice board in the craft room here!

Well done on the win - will post ASAP!

I remember the pretty pink card. I absolutely love it in green. Maybe even more so than in pink.
