52 Card Challenge 2014 - Week 1

Inspired by some of the cards made by others, I decided to make a start and join in with the 52 Card Challenge for 2014. For details of this challenge please see Kool Kitty Musings Blog

The challenge for week 1 was to use some of the new stash. 

I have been trying to use up some old stash so this was quite a challenge, but I did have some new (to me) Bo Bunny Noteworthy die cut journal pages and accents for the Country Garden Collection, so I used three butterflies from this set together with some left over papers from the same collection. I trimmed off the white outlines from each butterfly before inking the edges.
I used some new Dusty Attic chicken wire, laser cut chipboard, a new Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs, new glossy accents and Golden Rod Stickles. The name was cut with the old faithful 'Storybook' Cricut Cartridge. The greeting is a new stamp from Lili of the Valley. The letters are glossed and the butterflies are highlighted with Stickles, gems, pearls and stamen for antenna. 

Thanks for looking and I will be back soon with my week 1 Christmas cracker.

  2. From Natty:
    "Hi Lynn, just commented on your blog but not sure it has stored as I didn't get a message afterwards, but if not just to say your card was lovely and those glittery, bling, and pearl accents were a great finishing touch. J


  3. Love the butterflies - very pretty!
