Hello Crafters,

   Thought I would give Joans Challenge #20 "Blue and White with layers another try.  I was just having fun and didn't notice until a minute ago what was on the paper. Oh well I did it and it's different but so am I.
LOL - here goes.

This is very simple but boy does it have layers. The insert with the bow comes out.

Hello again Crafters,

I used an eBosser  -embossing folder for dots on the left and swirls on the right (Love my eBosser)
Cheery Lynn Mini fanciful flourish B1175 with green card stock
                    Faetie Queen butterfly with angle wing DL161 and DL 156 Both are cut from vellum and TH
                    distress mustard seed ink to color butterfly.
                    Tiny Things B266 for small butterfly (lost in the leaves at the bottom left)
                    Creative Memories punch for the other small butterfly at the top right
                    Lace between the two card stocks is from my stash
Very simple but I thought cute.

Hello Crafters.

    Time for #19 over at Joans Garden - I made time this week although I really don't know how but I wanted to post a card or two so here goes.  Use Yellow and white, 2 butterflies, polka dots, swirls and of course something purchased at
Yellow and white Card Stock - Vellum dots and swirls hard to see but dots on top and swirls on bottom
I used Tim Holtz distress ink "Mustard seed on back side of vellum so it would show design better.
My ribbon I found in my stash it was perfect for this card. Sure wish the pics were better.
I used the Spellbinders LF006 Butterfly w/wings cut from the yellow card stock and the dot vellum.
Under the butterfly is a Heartfelt Creation Die "Timeless Amour HCD 728. The corners are cut from the center of the same die.Also from HFC I used the Sun kissed tags and basket HCPC 3535, Fleur HCPC 3533 and the Die Cut as well from that set. The sentiment was from Sprinkle & Sparkle stamp set "Danes garden umbrella 392. Small butterflies are from Creative Memories punch and the lady bugs are their stickers. Kaiser pearls-yellow and white.
