Flutterbys for MAWTT

 Good morning. This is my second post for today and this time it's to share my DT project for


(my first post for CHARISMA CARDZ can be seen here)

Our theme this week has been picked by the lovely and uber talented Pami 


Our sponsor this week is

 and they are offering 1 lucky winner £10 to spend online (not including P&P)

You may remember that when I posted this card earlier in the week I said that I would be back with another inky creation - well here it is:

 I started by inking a square piece of white cardstock using two of my favourite colours together  - Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage Distress Inks and then overstamped the Kanban Butterfly Script stamp using Archival Black Ink. I also stamped the individual Flutterbys onto co-ordinating Bazzil Cardstock, cut them out and layered them onto of the stamped images, with a few adhesive pearls and gems as a finishing touch.
This was then matt and layered onto the two pieces of co-ordinating cardstock. I also inled the basecard with the same Distress Inks and added a couple of lengths of seam binding in matching colours across the centre and then added a double bow.
 Once again I have to say that I really enjoyed making this card and am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see the gorgeous inspiration form my DT buddies - you won't be disappointed :o)
