Bling bling!



Had a card to make for a 70year old, its a large a4 size card. When I saw a tutorial by Rozzy for this butterfly using a pack of stamps from The Crafty Pad. I didn't get the stamps but did buy the same stamp as a digi and wasn't sure if I could use them for the butterfly but am really pleased with the results. I used glitter instead of beadazzle. The papers are from K & Company. I used my mas punch for the border, retro punch for the flowers and some sticky lace. What do you think? I know Brenda did a lovely butterfly tutorial, so must have a go at that one next. I am entering this into these challenges.
1. The Crafty Pad - followed their great sketch
2. Flutterby Wednesday - open challenge
3. Simon Says - Easter/spring and glimmer
4. Creative Cottage - sparkle
5. Digital Tuesday - spring
6. Fabnfunky - its all in the technique (my butterfly is my new favourite)

Hi Pinky
thnaks so much for entering in the Crafty Pad's Challenge this week withsuch a stunning card.
So pleased that you liked the tutorial and found it easy to follow.... It was 'me' that made teh tutorial, not Debbie...I made it as part of her Design Team.
I was waiting to see who would use it as this was my very first tutorial, and I wasn't sure if it worked. I love your card and wish you luck in the challenge... please pop by my blog where you will see a basket set also made with the decorated butterflies... plus watch out next week...I have made another card using them... as things go well in 3's :)
Hugs rozzy xx
