I hope you all had a good weekend, I'm not even going to mention the weather as it really isn't worth the waste of oxygen. I do know one lady that is having lovely sunshine, and that's Jane in Spain, Please Please send us some of your lovely sunshine. Don't leave yourself short, but every little over here you send would help.
I have one more card to make with these dies which I have had to make ahead of time as the lovely Lucinda who puts the cards on CE blog and facebook is on holiday next week, so we have had to make an extra one this week.I Hope you have a lovely break Lucinda, you deserve it.
All made and scheduled for 30th June, then it's Christmas!! YAY!!!
Where are my butterflies going to go in this Christmas month? If I can make a mobile Christmas card with a pear stamp and a butterfly Christmas tree as I did last year, I've got to think where else I can put them.
Hope you all have a good week and look forward to seeing you all again. XX

First I did my usual double matt & layering using black, gold & lilac foundations coloured card, and the top layer embossed with Sue's Climbing Vines EF. I cut a frame from the noble die set embossed it and gilded it with graceful mustard wax. For the focal point I used the middle of the noble die in black and turned it 45deg's to add a different shape to the centre. I then put the gilded frame on top with sticky pads for dimension. I then cut out the two centre's of the Porto collection and also the centre of the Lisbon collection. I stamped the sentiment onto the circular die and while it was still in the die I coloured it with dusty concord. I then layered each of them all with sticky pads
for even more dimension. I cut several flowers large and small and arranged them on the card and added some leaves made from Sue's maidenhair fern dies and dandelion clock dies, and of course a butterfly.
I hope Sue designs some more butterflies of various sizes, I NEED some more.
Hope you like the card today.
Big Hugs to all
