Flutterby's Dance at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings us the new challenge at the 


this week the theme has been chosen by the "Boss" the lovely Wendy owner of the Secret Crafter Shop

she knows how to pick a good theme and I really enjoyed creating this one, the theme is

Butterflies
(yep as many or as big as you like)

here is my design team inspirational piece
The papers are Prima and the pretty lace runs around the edge of the front of the card.  The flowers are hand made from cuttlebug floral dies, from the same papers as the butterflies, these are sprayed with water, scrunched up, opened out carefully and left to dry.  When dry the brad is put through the centre and then the edges are distressed, the leaves are made the same way.  The tag is another stunner specially made for me by the very clever Janette.  The butterfly punch is by Woodware and available here at the Secret Crafter.  I have added a liquid pearl body in gold
The sentiment is an MSE and the sentiment has been distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and today I did not get my copics out :(  

Please pop over and see the rest of the teams great inspiration for this challenge.
