Floral Fence

My sister had a lovely birthday and her paper flowers and butterfly frame made it across the Atlantic to the Channel Islands. Phew!

Here's a card I made this weekend for a new venture I'm embarking on with 2 friends, Barb and Yvonne. It was rather time consuming to make, but worth it :)

More of our creations can be found in our Etsy store, "The Card Patch".

Spiral Flowers & Butterflies

There's a new Big Shot die in the mini catalogue called the Spiral Flower die. It's great, look what I made with it! Such a sweet bunch of blooms using a retired paper stack. 

I then tried my hand at a butterfly shadow box. I love how this turned out, very quick and easy to put together. I used the small butterfly punch and scraps of DSP, fixed to some Shimmery Cardstock with a glue dot. Yes, it's that easy!

See you soon,
