Delicate butterflies...

Hello everyone :o)

One of the problems I'm finding now the craft room's all sorted and I can make things again... is that there's just too much choice!  All my crafty stash is organised and accessible, I've found loads of things I'd forgotten ever owning, plus I dropped all my store DTs last year except for DigiStamp Boutique.  So whereas before I'd plan my days around what I 'had' to make, now I can use anything, and I tend to sit looking at it all with no clue what to make!

So I had a look for some challenge inspiration, and spotted one at Addicted to CAS, where their code word is 'delicate'.  A good challenge for me, as my usual style is quite bright and bold.


I thought the combination of butterflies, vellum and pastels worked as a 'delicate' design... might have to make another version in bold colours though!

Items Used
MFT blueprints 13 (for the stitched base)
Tri-square die - Simon Says Stamp
Memory Box butterfly die
Doodlebug spotty vellum & sequins
Paper Smooches sentiment stamp
(stamped in Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
