Butterflys,Butterflys, butterflys...DT

                                                     Hello Everyone.
And Welcome to another 'Make it Monday'  and I cant believe that it has come around again so quick.. and once again ...I cant believe the amount of beautiful projects that have been on MIM last week.

Congratulations to the winners for last week, fabulous work.

This week we are sponsered by Platypus Creek Stamping and Crafts 


and their prize is a $20 gift voucher to either Platypus creek stamps  or Platypus Creek Digitals

The DT pick for me this weel was this lovely card by Benzi and here it is,


This is the card open, so gorgeous. Thanks for sharing Benzi, very cool card.



For my card this week I used a cute image called 'Amber' from Platypus Creek Digitals.
She was gazing up at something, and I thought, I might as well give her something to look at, hence the floating butterflys.
I use jewelery wire poked into the fold of the card and hot glued the back and front of the 2 butterflys together onto the wire, then bent them into shape.


A little side view there....

Decorated the inside as well, added a charm butterfly with the bow, and some WOC flowers.
Paper pieced her dress and bow, and coloured with pencils.

Still working on those cheeks, I'll get it right one day.

So thats another 'Make it Monday Linky Party' now open for business. Love visiting you all, keep up the fabulous work.

Welcome to my new followers, thanks for popping in, love to have you, and thank you everyone for your fabulous comments, you make my day.

Luv CHRISSYxx
