Sneaky Peek! Butterfly Elegance - Blue Dusk & Coconut White

Hello Crafters

It's getting closer to the launch of y Butterfly Elegance Collection next Monday so I really wanted to share this card with you... a little 'teaser' if you will ha ha

I was in our Nottingham shop earlier today, telling the class that I have thoroughly enjoyed working with these stamps,.. I have genuinely enjoyed designing these cards and putting all the bits together to create them :-)

Anyhoo, this card, I think, is one of my favourites,... so far!

It's really, really pretty and elegant and I will make sure I show this one on as many of my shows as I can! :-)

I have used (for the first time) Blue Dusk Foundations card and it is absolutely gorgeous!!!!
It is now in my top 3 colours and you will see me using it all the time now ha ha
Perfect with True White Detail Embossing Powder :-)

ps - If you go to my www to get this card, please don't take any notice of the colour it shows,.. it's nothing like it! That's the problem with computer generated images,.. not a true likeness!

As seems to be the 'norm' for me, this card did take a few hours to create, but so worth it,.. (I think so lol)

I will most definitely be demo'ing this card on one of my shows.

Here is what I used (with links to them on my www in case you 'need' them)

  14. Hi Phill WOW a gorgeous card and the butterfly stamps so pretty love them.
    just bought the snowflake stamps which i love and now look what you have done HA HA
    a must have looking forward to you showing these on tv .

  15. Good morning Phill,
    I need to make this card for my friend who doesn't know the meaning of the word relax. What a beautiful card and the dusk blue is like a softer, lighter version air force blue and could be for anyone because of its colouring. The New Zealand Auckland die shows of your butterfly oval to a treat but oh how i have fallen for your new stamps(i am a hestastent stamper as i don't seem to be able to get the right pressure on them with my stupid hands but i will keep trying. THank you flower for a beautiful card that surely anyone would love upon their mantlepiece.
