Framed Butterfly

 Good morning all!

Here at Crafty Cottage we're really enjoying the summery weather; such a change from wet weather! In this country there only seems to be two seasons, really ~ winter and summer.

We made good use of the dry weather this weekend and went to visit Mr Hippy's mum; it was her birthday last week and so we went for a lovely walk yesterday and dinner out last night.

We visited Fyne Court for a ramble - we saw loads of lovely wildflowers and butterflies. Which the dog loves to chase, here's a pic of him for the doggy fans:



With so many lovely butterflies about I thought today's card would have to be butterfly-shaped in some way; in fact I have made a lot of butterfly-themed cards recently.

Papillon Potpourri, Stampin' Up!

I've used two colours here: Summer Starfruit and Island Indigo - there is only one word for them both: Lush. 

Papillon Potpourri, Stampin' Up!

The butterfly is from Papillon Potpourri.

I used the oval frame from the Designer Frames embossing folders set which I ran through my Big Shot. I added a bit of "bling" (rhinestones) and some Designer Series Paper. With a "For You" sentiment (Itty Bitty Banners) this card is finished. Perfect for summer birthdays, thank you's or to give to a butterfly lover for any occasion.

All Stampin' Up! products are available to order through me: the_crafty_hippy@yahoo.co.uk

Back tomorrow,
Lauren
