Wired Up

This past week has been busy non stop every day from having the new second door being fitted, mammogram at hospital, boiler service, car service, hair appointment. (I did manage to meet up with a lovely blogging friend who is over from Canada at present.)  Next week so far I just have a dentist appointment to go to. Think I might have chipped a tooth though. Hopefully I can catch up on all your blogs.

Here are the last two inspiration cards to show you for the current Butterfly Challenge which closes
on Tuesday.

First card using Butterfly/Wheat/Wire.

Fairly simple card using up some snippets on my desk. I have used very fine gold wire for the antenna on the butterfly and the colour wheat is the squares that I have used behind the letters. These were out cuts from a die I had used previously, though for the life of me can't remember which one it was! Letters and edging  are gold stickers from my stash. 

Second card uses all seven elements of the challenge wheel.

Butterfly/Wisteria/Wine/ Wheat /Window/Washi tape/Wire

 Again I was using up a left over on my desk which was the die cut frame. I edged it with washi tape and then made a card base up using more of the wheat coloured cardstock.  The butterfly (using all 3 colours) was suspended with thin silver wires  which were attached across the opening in a web shape and captured between the two circles holding the butterfly in place.  Shows up perfectly IRL but couldn't catch very well on camera.  The die cut frame from the card base was edged with more of the washi tape and adhered inside the card so that when closed it fitted back  into the aperture. The sentiment is from a stamp set by Imagination Crafts.

Entering into the following challenge:

Glad you have a quiet week next week.
