MMM Challenge 9

It's the first of the month and we have a new theme over on the Make My Monday challenge blog and this month we are concentrating on all Things With Wings. I am so looking forward to these challenges and the first is Butterflies or Dragonflies.
I chose Butterflies and here is my card
I started off with a cream 5" x 5" card blank and added some Sage Shadow card stock. This was stamped with a script stamp and inked around the edges. I then took a piece of patterned paper and distressed the edges with my scissor blade and again inked them. I used a 'splat' (!) stamp to add some detail and there is also a postmark and number stamped on. The beautiful butterflies were added last to finish it off.

Card stock:- Stampin' Up - Very Vanilla & Sage Shadow
Paper:- My Mind's Eye
Inks:- Stampin' Up - Creamy Caramel & Sage Shadow
Stamps:- Stampin' Up - French Foliage & Nature Walk
Butterflies:- K&Company Grand Adhesions - Tim Coffey range.

Please pop over and take a look at all the other inspirational piece produced by my incredibly talented Deezine Team - and why not join in yourself - bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
