Fussy & Fancy #116 Things with Wings

I don't now where 2014 is going time is flying by and here we are with another Fussy & Fancy Challenge #116... I love this theme chosen by our talented Norma ... Things With Wings.... decisions, decisions.... birds or butterflies. Well butterflies it was ....and I thought it was time to make my favourite shaped card ... a stepper card. I wanted to use some Marianne Design dies as they are sponsoring this challenge. So here is the end result...

I used docrafts lovely new collection of papers called Eau de Nil it's such a soft bluey - green, I used navy as a contrast. Marianne dies are so lovely to use, I love the delicate lacey effect. I made my flowers from mulberry paper and added butterflies... my things with wings.  I do love butterflies on my cards, sometimes I find them very useful to cover up a mistake or thumbprint which magically appears just as I am finishing a card so if you see a random butterfly on one of my cards you know why.

So there it is I decided to make this for my Sister in Law's birthday as I know she loves these colours, I need to find my Mojo and get on with some cards as July is a very busy month for birthdays in our family. Why don't you enter our 'Things with Wings' challenge,  we always look forward to seeing what you've come up with just go here and entering is very easy.

That's all from me today xx Annie
