Butterflies and roses

Happy Wednesday everyone,
The time does march on at quite a pace as the first week of July is behind us. I had a workshop yesterday at Country Crafts.
This was one of the cards, will show the second one later this week.

The image is one of the new  stamps from Noor designs, which I was lucky enough to get while on holiday recently, but Joan has them in her shop.

 
 
Card recipe:
 
Paper...Craft cardstock, core'dinations cardstock
Noor design butterfly border 6002/0251
Image...Noor design 6410/0043
buttons, cord...have had in my stash for so long
 
I inked the craft card, sanded and distressed the core'dinations card. Matted all onto the base card.
Stamped the image onto watercolour paper and coloured it with distress inkpads. Tore around the edges and distressed.
The butterfly border I also coloured with distress inkpads.
Added, buttons, cord and a flourish.
 
Will enter it in the following challenges:
Loves Rubber Stamps challenge #60...Use a hoarded item...buttons have so many from long ago.
Oldie but Goodie challenge...In the garden....buttons have had for many, many months
Papertake Weekly...Old, new, borrowed or blue...old, are buttons, new are image stamp and border die.
Make it Monday...Anything goes.
Craft Creations ...Anything goes
An Inky Situation...Linky Party #1
 The Crafter's Café challenge #19...Anything goes
 My Craft Creations...Anything goes
 
I hope the rest of the week goes well for you all, have fun in the warm weather, enjoy the holidays if you are lucky to be away. See you soon and thanks for popping in.
Love Ursula
