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.

A Day at the Beach

Who doesn't love a picnic? I do love both of these stamps.  
The gingham is excellent for a background when you don't have 
something the colour you want.
I do suggest you have a misti or the equivalent though
Search the net and you will find many ways of making your own type of misti 
for a fraction of the price.  With a little practice you can also make the 
background bigger than the stamp.  There is a knack to lining it up.

Items Used: 
Lawn Fawn - Gingham Backdrops
Whimsy Stamps  Doveart - Beach Serenity 

Continue to enjoy your crafting and don't forget to check Bizzy Bec's Store
for any bargains.  Bec is usually cheaper than most as long as you are not in a hurry for the item.
