Shabby and Slim

Back as promised but with not one card but two  for more inspiration for the current Butterfly Challenge which still has another week to run. Here I am show casing just the colours and diamonds.You do not have to use the shaped card element of the wheel  to enter.

Card One uses:
Delft Blue
Diamonds (used as a pattern)

The diamond die cut is by Tonic Studios. Quite an old one now and part of a four piece set.  The roses are Spellbinders Rose Creations which i have just a bit of gold gel pen around the petals for a shabby chic look.  The butterfly is an SU punch which has been given the same treatment.  The digital  design paper is called Vintage Flower Garden Market by 'Jodie Lee from Snap,Click Supply Co.  Sentiment is by Kaisercraft. Pearls from my stash.
Entering this card into the following challenges.

Card Two uses:
Delft Blue
Diamonds (used as a pattern)
Diamonds (used as gems)

Card is a slim line which seems to be in vogue right now.  The design paper is another digital paper this time by Nitwits from their Flower Shoppe Too called Diamond Steel.  The die cut diamonds  is by tonic Studios called Parquet trellis. The sentiment is again by Kaiser craft and the gems were from my stash. butterflies die cut using the same SU punch. Whilst I was having a rootle around in my Tonic stash I came across the die cut for making the Essentials  Ornate Easel and as it had a diamond design I decided to also make it up using some of the delft blue cardstock so that I could display the cards with it.

Two great cards for inspiration. I have the Tonic die used in the first one - been in my stash almost forever. Good to see that slim cards are 'in' because I have quite a lot of those lurking as well which I should use rather than buying more. Hope panic buying doesn't kick in again to make life even more difficult for those who can't get out and about. Take care

Super cards Mrs A! Slim is really 'in' at the moment - wish someone would let my metabolism know! What a wet day!

Forgot to say, give Ocado your bags back each delivery - from the previous week if you want a refund of the charge which is 5p per bag. Today's delivery had one pack of frozen baby broad beans in one bag and one other frozen item in another. They might be profiteering as they only refund for the previous shop so if you forget you lose it - nuisance as we used to collect them then hand back a load at a time.
