 Hello everyone,

DT time because another week has flown by and time for a new challenge over at Little Red Wagon  

 our fabulous Jan is hostess, and she wants to see Spots/Stripes..

I left Christmas and went for spots and stripes, and red and black and white.. think I have everything covered..

This card started off with die cutting butterflies in black and white..
cut the black set, then the white set, then mix the details over, white on black, black on white..time consuming but fun..

See...Tim Holtz Brushstroke Butterflies..

Tiny gold centers for flowers [roses]

And had it all done and picked my papers, then changed my mnid..

and decided to go with black and white stripe...

Adding gold centers..

Then cutting and gluing these tiny Rose buds, from another set [Honey Bee stamps]

Now, I have made up my mind..

But had to join the papers as they are 6x6 and my card is 6 x8

Inside a bit of both and a place to write on..

Setting it out to make sure..

I'm happy and it is all glued down..

Flowers going on..

butterflies in place...

Dimension, yes, but still goes through okay..

And there she is...

So do come on over and join in with our spots/stripes 

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
