A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies



Morning Peeps, I've made a card again !!

Might not sound too amazing but with one arm, shoulder and neck still wonky and full of pain it's a bit of an achievement. It's not am amazing card and has taken me a couple of days but I was determined to get something accomplished on the craft front as I am fast running out of my 'just in case' work.................the last few weeks confirm to me that it's a good principal to stand by and craft for England when I'm OK. 

It's for the current Snippets Playground challenge and also the Butterfly Challenge which is of course Butterflies with Kraft and/or Kaleidoscope, well the latter immediately said a Kaleidoscope of Butterflies to me, so stamping onto Kraft card with Altenew Layered Lilies and lots of punched Butterflies using up glitter card snippets.

My thanks again for all your kind visits when I am such a poor blogger, they all mean so much and do lift my spirits.

Hello, Brenda! Thank you for your kind words on my blog - I read them to Brian and he appreciated them too. I am so glad you were able to get a card made. This is gorgeous! I love butterflies and yours are beautiful! This challenge theme eludes me - the kaleidoscope part - so I'm still mulling it over! You've done a fabulous job with it!

It is so beautiful with these neutral tones and the kaleidoscope of sparkling butterflies! The flowers look gorgous, and so elegant!
Hope to see other cards from you, when you feel ok...
Big big hugs!!!

Not a poor blogger...just a poorly blogger at the moment. And your card looks lovely all the same, very subtle colour scheme and beautifully stamped multi-step flowers. xx

The stamp on kraft has a wonderful result Brenda - most effective

Sarah said...

This is really lovely Brenda, the colours compliment the kraft card perfectly and although I have resisted a layered stamp set so far I think you may well have persuaded me that they might be a useful addition to my stash!! Wishing you better days xx
