Here is my next inspiration for you using the colour Olive and Oval shape for the 2nd week of my
Base card is a pink pearlescent which I used tent fold. Backing design paper is by Jennifer Ellory and came free in Quick Cards 2013. I distressed round the edges and adhered to the base card. The central flower is paper from the Nancy Watt Collection 'Pretty Pansies' free this time from Making cards. I've used the Olive negative piece of card from the previous make to create the oval shape.
Bet you can't guess what the white netting is from. It just happened to be on my desk from where I had salvaged it from the fridge. It was originally a net bag containing little round cheeses !! Waste not want not is my motto so I sandwiched it underneath the die cut and over the flower image. I used my Spellbinders Marvelous Square to die cut the four corners from a further scrap of the backing design paper. It does look a bit like I have die cut them from the Oval but they are glued on top honest!.
Butterflies are Memory Box 'Isabella' die cut from another scrap of the Olive card stock. I also cut a smaller oval for the sentiment using my Xcut oval nesting dies. All cut using my big shot manual machine. I had to succumb to using a new cutting plate as one of the older ones broke in two and was quite badly marked. (Well I had been using it for the past 6 yrs so I think I got my monies worth).
The other plate is still intact so will do for a while longer. Finished off with gems from my stash.Close up below showing the plastic netting. I'm quite pleased with how that turned out. I have another bag on my desk!!
