Butterflies and Bling

Almost missed this weeks Friday Mashup.  Forgot card was still sitting waiting to be finished!  Where has the week gone?

This week, it's butterflies and bling and to mash it up use colours Perfect Plum, Marina Mist plus one added colour and a neutral.  I've added Melon Mambo and Whisper White is my neutral.

I've started off by sponging a Whisper White square with my colours Perfect Plum, Marina Mist and Melon Mambo.  Then added a butterfly from Butterfly Prints and punched out with my Butterfly Punch.  Some Basic Rhinestones add the bling.  The square is mounted onto Marina Mist card.  I attached a punched lace frill by using the Eyelet Border Punch.  I've sponged this also with my three colours.  Before attaching to the Perfect Plum card base I've further stamped the butterfly in the same ink.

Thanks for looking and hope you've had a great week. x

Like the subtle use of colours... the bling adds such a generous touch of glamour to it all.

I'm glad you made it just in time Aileen, this is so cute. I like how your butterflies in the background give it a checkerboard look. That trail of bling following your butterfly adds a great touch! Very pretty background behind your focal image as well. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup this week.
