Another good-for-crafting day here in bonnie Scotland, it's wet, though surprisingly warm for the time of the year. The smokebush is looking fabulous ... and if it wasn't so wet I'd pop out and take a snap to show you, maybe later :)
I'm sharing a simple and fast card again ... I don't seem to have time for anything else at the moment but at least it's taking care of my crafting craving :)
I simply wrapped some of that gorgeous cream lace around it - it looks white in the pic but that's because I'm photographing under natural light now that my Ottlite has died :( Then it was matted on to a layer of Core'dinations Aged Wine card before adhering it to a 6" square white card base - cut from a 12" sheet of Bazzil Basics cardstock.
The butterflies were cut from scraps of the Core'dinations card and the green patterned paper, from the Docrafts Papermania Happy Days collection, using a combination of dies - X-Cut and cArt-Us for the solid ones and a freebie from Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine for the filigree one. The flourishes, also cut from the Happy Days scraps, are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Flourish Accents set.
Finally, Stampin' Up oval punches were used for the simple stamped greeting and peach coloured pearls the decoration.
And that was it ... simples! I've left the lovely paper to do most of the work ... it would be a shame to do otherwise.
And for the second day in succession I'm submitting a snippet card to Pixies Snippets Playground - Week 95 ... well somebody has to keep an eye on the ducks while Di is living the vida loca in exotic climes :)
I'm not sure what I'm going to do now, an early lunch I think, and time to consider what task is the most vital ... I can hardly bear to look at my to-do list!!!
I hope you had a marvellous Monday and are having a terrific Tuesday :)
Take care and happy crafting,
