Flight of The Butterflies.

Running spectacularly late. 
 I had a photo malfunction last night 
and after staying  up till  5.30am sorting it 
 gave up and went off  to bed.
Finally here is todays post.
It's time for a new challenge  over at
my Butterfly Challenge.

You can form  your arch from flowers or maybe you  have a stamp/die cut  with an archway, A corner die cut makes a perfect arch when two are placed together to make the curve at the top. You are free to use what other embellishments you would like + your Butterfly of course.  (Even an archway made from lots of little butterflies). 
Here is my inspiration card for you.

Digi image is by Britishisleartworks
called 'Gothic Garden Arches Antique Illustation'
which I found on Etsy.
I coloured with my promarkers and just a little
pearlescent chalk around the aperture edging.
I die cut the aperture to the front of the card
using by Sizzix  Scallop Crescent Tag die 656342.

You can see better in this picture that I have
backed with acetate and adhered the 
Best Wishes sentiment to the  front of  it
which is showing through the die cut.
The butterflys are fly stickers and they 
have been adhered across the top 
of the archway as if in flight.

The digi image has been attached to the inside 
of the card.

I have upped the ante on this challenge
but I'm sure you will all come up trumps.
I will post some more inspirations for you 
later in the week so please be sure to call back.
I promise you they will not be dificult.
