Three of a kind at Creative Craft Cottage.

A very good morning friends,
Happy Saturday to everyone, and today we are having a holiday here in South Africa, but it isn't quite the same having a public holiday on a Saturday.
As of yesterday we are now heading towards winter, so that is not a nice thought either, but I do love the autum days, so will enjoy them, although the temps yesterday were more like summer.

Anyway, onto the business of the day...  we have another challenge at Creative Craft Cottage.
 #36 and the theme is 3 of a kind. A nice easy one.

The sponsor this time is The East Wind and the DT have made awesome cards using one of their images, so please hop over and see all the lovely creations.

This is my card with 3 butterflies.

Paper - I used a sheet from a vintage paper bloc, and it has the layers printed on it. Quite lovely I thought.
The image I used is Aurora Spring Butterfly and you can find it HERE I coloured it with Distress inkpads and added glitter.
The 3 butterflies were cut with my new butterfly dies from Crealies, I used papers from the same paper bloc, but just added some more colour and glitter to them as well.
Sentiment is from Marianne Designs.
I will enter it in the following challenges:
