Look no Flowers!

But it does have pink on it and Butterflies so I get to use 2 out of 3 of my favourites !
The previous card was really meant for this challenge but when I had finished realised  it wasn't CAS so back to the drawing board again.

Pink paper using up scraps from yesterday. Details in post below.

Beautiful card Mrs A - I have a couple of packs of backing paper with similar designs in and had been gawping at them wondering what on earth I'd ever use them for. Of course, butterflies! :) Lovely result Missus.

That is a pretty card Mrs.A. The background fence just sets the butterfly off nicely and makes a change from sitting on a flower.

I really like the butterflies on the "wooden fence!" The sentiment is so delicate and lovely and your card turned out quite pretty! I almost never make CAS cards - I begin with CAS in mind, and then overdo nearly every time! lol

This is so lovely...the whitewashed background reminds me of an old barn wall or an old dock...two places you would see a butterfly!
Those dies are so delicate...the sentiment word dies are such a great idea as whenever I stamp direct to card I do it crooked!!!

Bonnie said...

What a delightful pink butterfly on that wonderful background!
