Another butterfly card,   this time I didn't reach for a stamp and used papers  from the pile I keep  to look at. I'm sure I am not the only one who does this. One of my memo's to myself  is to get them used.
 It' s the  Crowded Attic collection by Tim Holtz that I am using for this card..
The card is simply layered papers, with a few of the butterflies cut out.
I  even machined sewed the lace, adding the bow and a few  pearls.
This week  at  Gingersnap Creations   is the  Random Redhead Challenge GC 135  use your ' Favourite  Designer Paper'. now this I'm sure fits the theme.

Here's another page from my play journal.

Isn't she enjoying herself, cutting  out her paper hearts. The Stamp is by Stampotique .
The background as you can see is a mis-match of various stamps, stencils and colours.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments
