Less is More Butterflies!!

Good morning all!

The sun is shining and it's the weekend, what more could you ask for! Well, a new LIM challenge for one, and this week Chrissie and mandi have come up with butterflies! This is so perfect for me as I am having a bit of a butterfly obsession at the minute, which my husband has definately noticed as they feature on most of my cards at the minute! So I couldn't wait. I just had to dive straight into my stash and get creating right away (before breakfast or any of the household chores!!).

So without further ado, here is my entry/entries for this weeks butterfly challenge.

a change of sentiment and I have another...

the inside is decorated simply and identically for both..
Here they are both together side by side....


I had to make two of these as I loved the first one so much I had to replicate it, with just a simple change of sentiment. I love these summery colours together, makes me feel as though I'm in a meadow, laid in the grass looking up at the butterflies flitting around! Ah bliss!

Materials

CS: SU Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Melon Mambo

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Cheer and Wishes, Sincere Salutations

Tools: SU Stampamajig, Sponge Daubers, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die

Misc: Stampin Markers

Well I hope you like my card for this weeks LIM challenge. I can see me recreating this design, maybe with a change in colour and sentiment again, as they were so quick and simple to design.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you're up to!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
