Butterflies just for you

Evening Folks
Well, I sure am glad this working week is over.  Only been four days but they have been so busy.  Should be better next week as staff are back from their Easter holidays.  Sadly, I have not had a lot of time for crafting this week.  I did get in my crafty room tonight and produced this little number below.

Quite a simple little number.  I embossed a piece of white card and matted and layered this onto red and blue cardstock.  I cut two butterflies out of pearlescent pastel blue card using one of my Marianne dies.  Added a blue ribbon to the side, a flower and some buttons.  The finishing touch was a little pre printed sentiment and some blue pearls.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Blue, white and one other colour
One Stop - Pastel and die cuts
Totally Papercrafts - Things with wings
Crafty Ribbons - Things with wings
Paperplay - Things with wings
Unstampabelles Challenge - colours of your country's flag (UK - red, white and blue)

I have a lovely day tomorrow as I am going to Ally Pally.  Never been to this show before so I am really looking forward to it.  The only difficulty will be deciding what to buy or not.  Trouble is I want everything lol.

Take care and thanks for popping by.
