How to: admire butterflies

This is the last post for today, I promise! LOL
Today's new challenge at
http://craftycatzweeklychallenge.blogspot.com/
is being hosted by our talented Nick and she has chosen the theme
THINGS WITH WINGS
We have got two sponsors for this one:
http://www.inkyimpressionsrubberstamps.com/index.php
and
http://www.craftyribbons.com/

I have made a totally spring card... I guess.
For this card I have chosen the sponsor's digi 'Butterfly Lili'. It is colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam.
I have taken out my forgotten butterfly punch to make these two purple butterflies. Plus a butterfly button, which has been in my stash since God only knows when.
There is no sentiment on the card, so it could be used for many occassions.

How to: wait under an umbrella

Welcome back! This is a post of reminding you about the new release at

This week I have chosen the 'Feather Umbrella' digi for my card.
The digi is colored with Promarkers and cut into a heart shape. I have done this manually, simply with scissors. The edges are distressed with distress inks and the whole image has been lifted up with a 3D foam.
As an embellishment I have used a washi tape, lace, ribbon, pearls, acrylic drops and a button. All from my stash.
There is no sentiment this time, but I made my own background using THIS stamp set.
There's still some time to enter a Sami Stamps challenge with these simple rules.

Springtime is really here and every day it gets greener and greener!

This is so exciting!

And here's my GDT card, made for my Mum's B'day.
Sometimes I really like to go shabby chic and this is what I did here. May I have your attention to this tiny pear, please? My Mum's family name is 'Pear', so I had to add it here. It was a 'must' LOL
All of these embellishments are from my stash and this pearl button is from my Mum's stash, which she gave me, when I started my cardmaking adventure.
The sentiment is a rubber stamp and it says 'For your B'day'.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
And thank you for inviting me to be a GDT, it's always a great pleasure and honour!

For this card I have used a Polish high quality paper collection 'Bed of Roses II'. The rest of the embellishments are from my stash. I also used my bubble die cut, which suited here perfectly.
The sentiment says 'Best wishes' and it's a rubber stamp.
