Button Butterfly.

Yesterday was sketch day over on the Splitcoast Stampers  site and I have been using Vintage Vogue and Greenhouse Garden such a lot lately that I decided to do a butterfly instead.
So I was rummaging through my scraps drawer and all in one go these pieces of card all landed on the floor at the same time - how could I not use them they looked so good together don't you think?
The orange polka dot is the last piece from an Anna Griffin scrapbooking set - I'm a little sad to see it go. There are a couple of Bazzill Basics scraps and a small piece of Crumb Cake - mmmmmmm cake! All the edges have been sponged with Chocolate Chip ink and the main image is from the Pocket Silhouettes set stamped in Really Rust (retired) and Chocolate Chip. I added a small wooden button with some parcel string to finish off the butterfly. Oh - and I still have Viji's Martha Stewart punches - so I had to use that too!!!
Today I was helping at our village playgroup - it was the Easter Egg Hunt and one the little girl's had her 4th birthday party. I didn't manage to find any eggs but I had a piece of yummy rainbow birthday cake.
Before I go can I direct you to the top right of my side bar? Monica  is part of a world wide event taking place on May 14th which involves using Stampin' Up goodies to help raise funds for a Breast Cancer charity - all the details are on her blog , just click on the pic.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today - please leave me a comment so I can return the favour and please come back again soon - Jacqueline xx.

  1. I love the way you stamped your plants in a curve towards the right on this card and it made me smile when you said the papers had all landed on the floor together - were they shouting "pick me, pick me"?

    You sound as if you had a lovely time at the playgroup! We can never compete with children in an Easter egg hunt - they have a nose for chocolate!
