I've had an unbelievable three weeks so am running a day late with my card.

Items Used:
Sue Wilson Dies - Butterflies in flight
Frantic Stamper Dies - Scallop Borders (set of 3)
Dees' Distinctively Dies - With Love
Add pearls along the side.
Colour butterflies with inks and liquid pearls.

I added a butterfly on a V crease on the top of the insert.  
This makes the butterfly pop up when opened.

If I weren't so pressed for time I would have made a few versions.
Butterflies in Flight is a lovely die to use and you have extra types  butterflies for other projects.

June is almost over already.  
Make sure you get your card into the Challenge this month.

Let's go Surfing

I love this stamp, 
unfortunately Bizzy Bec doesn't seem to have it any more.

I still remember the day one of our son's said he was going to start surfing.
It was the same week a young fellow have been attacked by a shark.
I thought his timing was lousy, 26 years later he still surfs when he can and 
is  now teaching his son to surf.

Thus the two surf boards.
