 Hello everyone,

Gosh, I worked hard today at my son's and at home, must be spring fever creeping in, hope it lasts.

I have another really easy, and quite pretty card to share today using a panel I printed, as I fell in love with picture, and left over daisies and to be honest, I don't think you can tell that they didn't be the judge..

So these were my left overs..

My card base and rusty coloured card stock..

This is the panel, I just love it..

See, flat as a  pancake..

These are some of the left overs..

Added nice thick round foam pads.

now look..

Scrap cardboard from packaging, or maybe off the back off a pad.

This die will fit down the side, I didn't want to cover anything up..
and little wooden button butterflies..

tied a black piece of thread through and tied a bow with minimal bad language..
I'm sure I was born with more thumbs than fingers when it comes to bow tying..

And there you go..

The butterflies were the perfect blending colours,
 and I love that vertical die.

can you tell those flowers are even there?

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow...I have the WHOLE day to myself tomorrow,
 hops my mojo stays,
 and delivery day tomorrow..TEMU day.



I won first prize at a Facebook challenge..
Archiscraps for July..
and my parcel arrived this morning..

with this project...

The background panel is beautiful Chrissy, perfect with your die cut daisies- just 'menabee'(translation - meant to be-) as my friends son used to say...
Congrats on your win, that's a lovely prize!

Daisies are a favorite of mine and I love how you've used the panel and added some dimensional ones to it! Such a gorgeous card including your little butterfly button too!

So gorgeous, I do love that pretty printed panel you have, gives the card such dimension and your flowers blend into it perfectly. I am with you tying those bows, but I do love your butterflies!
