My Butterfly Challenge still has another week to run
so here are a couple of more cards for your inspiration.
The Technique Twist current challenge is to make a
Building Blocks card.
As I'm always on the look out for new card shapes to try out I thought I would give this one a go.
There is an excellent tutorial on Split Coast Stampers
which I found mega easy to follow. In fact I didn't even use my Xcutter just sissors.
I used plain card stock for the base in both yellow and Green.
DP. is from 'Pretty Pansies' collection by Nancy watt.
Embossed Stickers by Papermania
this time in a yellow/brown/ cream colour way
again a prezzie from blogging pal Lesley.
Yellow butterflies punched using a Tonic Punch and already in my stash
along with the cream bows.

For my second card I have used a design
(pealing back papers)
That I have been meaning to try out for ages.
I thought it would work perfectly on this card.
The stripe paper is a freebie from Papercraft Magazine called Candy-Cute.
I layered this on to a blank card base and then roughed up the edges with my handy gadget.
Spotty paper is two papers stuck back to back and cut just slightly smaller .
Again the edges have been distressed and also the slit which has been turned back
to allow the base paper to show through.
Sentiment is a freebie from Beyond The Fringe given the same treatment.
Gold foil butterflies are a topper by Dufex
Ribbon trim , pearls and flowers from my stash.
