Bye Bye Butterfly


How are you today? I can't believe how quickly these weeks are going - can you believe that we are mid-June already?

So, this week over at Charisma this week, our challenge for you is:


Yep, thats right, we wanna see some bling on your card!!

My card this week is one that I have made for my daughter and her friend to give their teacher as their leaving card. Their teacher is a right trendy lady, she is lovely. So, to try and go with 'trendy' I went with the black and white theme as I love this. I did three butterflies to symbolise the teach (silver butterfly on the flower), and the two black butterflies flying away (daughter and friend). I love the way it has turned out to be honest. It also gave me great opportunity to use these pearl wire thingies that I have had for years!! Am completely loving making my own flowers at the mo and love the way this one turned out.

Recipe: DCWV black card, feather pieces from hair piece, pearl strings from stash, silver card from stash, rub on sentiment from stash, glitter,
pearls from Hobbycraft, Martha Stewart leaf punch

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
