JAI#248 and SSSC254, More Butterlfy Thinlits Birthday cards


 I Love the colour combination at JAI this week but of course I couldn't only make one card! The Butterfly Thinlits are easy to use and I have been playing with lots of samples for my upcoming class this weekend.




The Leaves were heat embossed with clear embossing powder and I cut out one extra leaf stem to go in the bouquet of flowers. The flowers are Naturals White water coloured with Rich Razzleberry ink with a  pearl centre, and the Sahara Sand flowers are sponged with Pool Party ink. The Sahara Sand Seam Binding make a lovely soft bow and the Crystal Buttons are always gorgeous. I have used Kinda Eclectic, Bitty Banners and French Foliage stamp sets, though the inside Sentiment is from a very old Stampin' Up set which I bought on ebay many years ago - before I was truly a SU convert - and I have no idea of the name or age of that set. (If you know I would love to learn it - the set included a group of children chasing butterflies with a net) 
The message says "Just fluttering by with a birthday Hi" -so cute.

The inside

So while I had the ink and paper out I made another sample - this time using the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge  No 254


Same stamp sets as above, Same colours, with the addition of the Butterfly Thinlits and the Bird Builder Punch and some Sahara Sand lace.


Mmmm, so now that I have another look at the sketch I have to admit that it's a pretty loose application,- but anyway i appreciate the stimulus that it gave me to create something new!!

thanks for looking, Liz
