Just felt like making a card to take my mind off things and before I knew it there were two on my desk! Made these for Di's
I saw this butterfly idea in a magazine with several butter flies on the card using the Martha Stewart Punch all over the page die, but as I don't have it I had to make do with just the one large one instead. I used snippets for the double sided butterfly and the flourish which is attached to the top of the card. (Realised after I had done it that I could have just die cut the flourish from the card as well as the butterfly.) Not very clear from the picture but I used up some brown seed beads for the body. Had these rub on transfers by Pergamano in my stash and really pleased with the results. Big difference from the letter and number transfers we had as kids Yes ! Before you
ask the all inmportant question I do still have them. Says WH Smith on the packet and even tells me they are in Hevetica 24pt. No point scoring for the wally shrink plastic heart button. Couldn't go anywhere else really.

My second card is using up snippets from already used snippets! Namely the green stem and leaves from the paper used on the grass in the bunny card I made previously. Again the flower is my version of an idea seen in a magazine on a step card. The ribbon is a 12" piece that I have had in my stash for decades (3 at least). Debated long and hard where to hide the wally plastic shrink heart button but in the end opted for the obvious.
Entering into the following challenges.

Best of all I have only used stuff from my stash/freebies so I havn't broken my UIU pledge for 2012.
