Flutter by, Butterfly

Where has this year gone already?!  Can't believe our clocks jump forward tomorrow night, but I'm looking forward to the bright evenings.  Maybe I'll get my crafting done in daylight and get some decent pics!  I'd treated myself to a wee day off work today, but spent quite a lot of it on my knees painting skirting boards (ouch, poor sore knees!)  Looking good though ... except need to do the rest of the house now.  Isn't it always the way!

My card uses this cute butterfly from The Alley Way Stamps - paper pieced his middle and frame and butterfly popped up on dimensionals.  Butterfly charm from stash.

Colour theme from TAWS Be Inspired #51
Layout from CAS(E) this Sketch #70
Charisma Cardz #7 - CAS
Top Tip Tuesday - metal (my butterfly charm)
Seize the Birthday - buttons and bling (I remembered the bling but forgot the buttons, so it's a good job they're optional!)
Crafty Catz #224 - anything goes

  4. What a cute butterfly and you did just fine with the bling on the card not to mention the butterfly charm!! The frame really sets off the butterfly! thank you for linking it up to Seize the Birthday!

  5. Love those polka dots. Good job with your BIC challenge. Great frame, too, and just perfect for placing your butterfly. Super creation, Lynne.

    I love all the extra daylight I can get. I am always happy when we get the time change for longer daylight in the evenings.
