flutterby butterflyyyyyyyy...

Today was asked if i could make a card using lilacs or purples for a mother-in-law's birthday ... After having a root through my stash i came across these pretty Papermania Henbury Lane papers... ideal for the job!!
then i spent a good half an hour trying to get a decent cut from my Marriane butterfly die...gosh they are hard work!! if the die dosnt cut right through your card youve had it lol.... i coloured my butterfly using my purple shades of promarkers blending from a pink shade to darker purple then out again through to Lavendar. i added a touch of sparkle (which i always thinks looks nice on these butterflies) using light purple glitz it glitter glue. the flowers i arranged onto a piece of foam tape and again glitzed up with glitter glue to match xx
lets hope they like it !!!
and i did another with a slight variation to the theme to add to my box of cards xx

What beautiful cards!! You must be so proud of yourself!! I had the same trouble with my marianne die but now put some extra card through to give it some extra pressure, particularly on thicker card.
