Night Skies

Another week flown by (I'm sure they are jet propelled) and it's into the second week of
so here is my next inspiration for you.
My first card literally is a Night Sky. The preprinted paper  is a freebie from Making Cards April 2016 called Starry Night which already came as a circle which just happens to fit my 3.5" punch exactly. 
I have cut an aperture into the card front using my Sizzix scalloped circles die cut and used the resulting cut out to adhere the image to and then in turn to the inside of the card lining it back up with the scalloped edging.  The repeat of butterflies are  (SU punch) and  paint sample swatches (that have been hanging around in my stash for ages) glued around the edge of the scallop. The black gems and black sentiment are also from my stash.  The paper on the inside of the card is again  a freebie from Making Cards April 2016.

Entering the card above into the following challenges:
Die Cuttin Divas #310 Anything goes.
Aud Sentiments #176 Any sentiment except birthday.
Crafty Gals Corner #116 Anything goes.
Double 'D' Challenges # Things that fly.
Scrapping 4 Fun #86 Recycling old stash.
Scraper's Delights #64 Anything goes.



Second card was even simpler to make. Just design paper a freebie this time from Paper Crafter magazine Jun 2016 by Hunkdory called Boutique Chic. Lots of repeat buterflies on here in pretty shades of dark blue and adhered to front of a card base. The picture frames are wooden MDF cut outs that I have coloured using my distress marker pen 'Chipped Saphire'. Again  I have used paint sample swatches but this time a woodware butterfly punch and white pearl gems. The frames have been attached straight onto the design paper and the butterflies have 3d pads behind them to raise them up. Sentiment is a silver glitter sticker. The frames are on straight but I had to take the picture at an angle so that the sentiment showed up clearly. 

Entering this card into the following challenges:
Through The Craft Room Door # Anything goes.
Crafty Creations #338 Anything goes.
Creative Inspirations #271 Anything goes.
Inspiration Destination #125 Anything goes.
Penny's Paper Crafty #318 Anything goes.
