Dots and stripes

Hey everyone…it’s the last day of holidays for me..well for hubs actually…which means more time for myself…certainly will miss bugging him all day!! Oh well, another holiday looms on the horizon for us..10 days in Jan. Want holidays, marry a lawyer!!

Ok enough about holidays…did you check out the card on the Pie lane blog? I loved making it and its so easy, even the most novice card maker could make it…do drop by…

I don’t know what prompted me to create such a bright card…but bright it is…Base is Peacock Blue Fabriano CS.

The distressed panel started as White CS (Brustro) and distressed it with Wild honey, and Spiced marmalade (that is one heavy orange color) and a touch of Vintage photo.
Stamped the hero arts flourish background (thanks you guys for this fabbie stamp) with spiced marmalade. Tags are hand cut, added a punched 5 petal flower and punched a hole through it..tied some charcoal twine. 

Pattern papers are from Itsy bitsy. The paper is double sided, and I’ve used the orange polka dotted side to punch butterflies in( 3-in-1 butterfly punch), and the striped side to add a border…which is also punched with Threading water Fiskars punch. 

A bit of Sakura Diamond dust on the butterfly completes the card…
Sentiment is from the Penny black Betsy bluebell set (see I used both my sets!!!)
 How could I not show my butterflies?
