More Butterflies

Sorry for my long absence again, but blame hubby for giving me a lovely chest infection which has kept me well under the weather for over a fortnight. Anyhow feeling much brighter again, so thought I'd share another card with you all.
The background for this card has been stamped in smoky grey ink, using the dictionary background stamp. This has then been over stamped with the beautiful swallowtail image in pool party. This has then been cut into a square, mounted on some basic black, before being mounted on a pool party square card base.
Two butterflies were then stamped from the papillon potpourii set, and cut out with the matching bitty butterfly punch and elegant butterfly punch. The sentiment is cut using the large oval punch, and mounted onto a scallop oval punched shape.
I hope you like, and I would like to enter it in the following challenges;
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Creative Moments - anything goes/things with wings
The House That Stamps Built - things with wings
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - monochrome
Thanks so much for popping by, and hope to see you again soon

Butterfly Tiles

Afternoon All
Just thought I'd pop by with a little butterfly creation, using the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Elegant Butterfly punch, both of which I find really useful. The paper is from the retired Twitterpad collection (loved this set, and was really upset when it was discontinued). 
To make this card, I have matted white squares onto red squares, and cut a butterfly aperture using the elegant butterfly punch. These have been mounted onto a background of the Twitterpad paper, matted onto matching red cardstock, using foam pads so the 'tiles' are slightly raised. I have then cut and shaped 4 bitty butterflies and set them into the apertures, finishing off with a few pearls. If you click on any of the links, they will take you to the products used in my online shop.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Challenge 4 Everybody - anything goes
Dragonfly Dreams - we're up in the air
Kitty Bee Designs - monotone
Jellypark Challenges - things with wings
Cuttin and Stampin Challenge - butterflies are buzzing
Thanks very much for stopping by, and I would love it if you would become a follower if yo like what you see.
