CD Sunday - Butterflies

It's the start of a new month and officially the beginning of spring. We have a new challenge at CD Sunday for you and as it is the beginning of the month we have a sponsor as well. Caroline has kindly offered to sponsor us again and we have all been working with her Butterflies.

This week we also welcome a new guest designer who has been a regular entrant into our challenges and hopefully you will enjoy  Marina's designs throughout March.

Caroline has very kindly said that the winner can choose either digi kits or stamps to the value of £10. What a fabulous prize for someone.  Caroline has a new kit out called Rainbow Butterflies so this is the kit we worked with this week. Butterflies are always a favourite so hopefully you will all be able to find something to join us this week.

I took two of the backing papers into CAP to make a quilted backing paper and added a small butterfly to each of the blue squares. I added a flower to the centre and then printed out three more butterflies in different sizes, cut these out and glittered them. The quote is from Hans Christian Anderson and generated on the computer. I then used a spellbinder die to cut it out. Everything was then layered onto blue card and stuck to an 8x8 card blank.

Please do take a look at all the lovely designs Caroline has available on her website and for more inspiration my fellow teamies have some wonderful things to show you.

  5. Hi Jocelyn
    I love the patchwork effect you've achieved. So clever to echo the butterfly shape in your die-cut. Lovely.
