Butterfly Garden

Time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and the theme of the challenge this week is pearls and gems. 

I used a butterfly die from Memory Box called floating butterflies for my card. Behind the die I used one of my Gelli Plate prints made with acrylic paints in my favourite colours of greens and blues. To complete the card I added some pearls and gems for sparkle. 

Thank you for stopping  by.  Please pop over to the Crafty Cardmakers challenge blog to see the creations that the design team have created to inspire you.

My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”  I hope you will join us in this challenge.
