Think Pink.

This is the second card made for my swap partner using die cuts as the main element. I saw this in simply Cards Magazine and have adapted the design.

The stripe paper is by Rasberry Road and the other two patterned papers from The Nancy Watt collection 'Summer Ladies'. All snippets I had left over from other projects.  The sizzix frame die is 657936 and the Crealies Creative shapes is CL CS 09.
The inside of the card has a butterfly in the fold. I have used a double winged one by QuickKutz. The border pattern on the right is a butterfly design by tonic studio which when you cut it out leaves you all these little tiny butterflies. Well I wasn't about to chuck them in the bin so they were carefully glued across the opposite page as if in flight. ( I have used the rest  on another card already shown).

Very pretty card there Mrs A. Like how you have hidden the flutterbies in the middle. Too early for them to be out really and cold!
Having problems getting the tail feathers right on my straw chicken! How is your donkey going?
