Make the Days Count

The current Butterfly Challenge is 'L for Letters and/or Lavender' and I've used a lovely pre-coloured image from a Lili of the Valley Art Pad for my card.  I'm entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'Anything Goes with Die-Cuts' challenge, Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.  The lavender card is all from my snippets drawer so I'm also heading over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'English Charm' Art Pad
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large, Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly'
Other: Sentiment from Docrafts Springtime Papers (magazine freebie)
Snippets: Lavender matt card

I trimmed the image along the top and bottom edges, layered it onto lilac card and attached it to the card front.  I die-cut the sentiment, layered it onto a scalloped die-cut circle of lavender card and attached it to the lower corner with Pinflair glue.  The mini butterfly was die-cut from lavender card and attached to the top corner.

That LOTV image is beautiful Kath and it is complemented so prettily with the lavender coloured butterfly matted layer and the scalloped circle the tag sits on. A really elegant card! x

Hi Kath, I really like this card and the sentiment is so true.

Hope you have had a lovely day. Sue

Kathleen said...

Love the sentiment and how true. Love the use of this LOTV image, they are so handy, what are we going to do when they have all run out, pity no-one else has picked up on these.

Great minds think alike Kath as I actually had this art pad image out on my desk to use for my 2nd weeks inspiration card!! Good job I'm running late and so have quickly changed it. I love how you have used the image for your card and the words in the sentiment are so true. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge where your card will be entered twice. Hugs Mrs A.
