Butterflies Or Bugs

Good morning everyone, hoping you're having a lovely weekend so far. We have sunshine here but it's freezing at the moment and very windy too.
I'm here today with the brand new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this fortnight we'd like to see you strut your stuff with creations showing Butterflies And/Or Bugs.
I was so pleased to see this as it gave me a chance to ink up my gorgeous new Stampsmith stamp called Butterfly Kiss and I absolutely love it as it's my favourite vintage style.


I stamped the image with VersaFine Imperial purple ink on Judikins matte krome coat card and added some colour by painting with various Distress inks when dry.
I made a patchwork style background by embossing 2 squares of olive green card with a butterfly embossing folder. The other 2 squares are some scraps of paper from the Polka Doodles All Around & Everywhere CD that I had in my scraps to use up.
I assembled the card as you see, adding some floral lace, a stamped butterfly (Crafty Individuals) and text which is part of an Inca stamp I've had for ages.

The Design Team have made some fabulously inspirational and varied creations so do hop on over for a feast for the eyes. You have a fortnight to enter your creations and hope to see you there.

I'd like to enter my card in this week's Sugar Creek Hollow challenge which is Embossing.
Thanks for looking.
Fliss xx
