Lavender Notes.

It is time for a new challenge over at

#62 Butterflies + L is for Letters  and/or Lavender.

So I would like to see  letters portrayed as either 
a sentiment using letters of the alphabet
or a  letter sent in the post  on your project
along with your Butterfly/ies of course.

Here are my inspiration cards for you. 

I have gone with using Letters
sent/received in the post on both.

1st card uses an LOTV pre coloured   Art pad image.
I have used a Fiskars decorated corner punch.
Layered onto lavender cardstock and then 
white card stock to make the base card.
Edges  rounded using a corner chomper.
I made a small envelope up from darker coloured
paper and used a Nellie's Choice E.F. to decorate.
Butterflies fluttering out of the open envelope
were punched using a small tonic punch.
I also used a Thank You  sentiment.

For my 2nd card I have used a freebie image
of a written letter called
'Garden Background text'
from Beyond The Fringe Freebie digis.
I distressed round the edges and adhered to
lavender cardstock made into the base card.
The pre coloured image is by Hunkydory 
from their Little Book of Flowers 
which again I have distressed around the edges.
Embroidered  butterflies, ribbon bow and pearls
from my stash  complete the card.

Hope you will come and join in the fun.
