rain rain go away!

omg what is wrong with this weather? we have had in the past 24 hrs sun, gales,sandstorms lol, sleet and now rain,isnt it about time spring popped up now and stayed for a while?

well peeps i have just entered a card for a chance to become part of a design team . i cant show the card nor can i say which company,but its all exciting stuff. if
 Today's card is again flutterflies

i simply adore them for any occasion and this paper was screaming out to me ,
i have mellowed the background with micro beads as i wanted a soft look, the green on this card is the back of the butterfly paper which i thought contrasted quite well
i used soft cream card and used the aperture that was left after cutting the frame die out its from the shapeabilities Samantha walker die collection called antique frame and accents , its a stunning frame!
i used the middle part of the frame on reverse (green) to stamp my sentiment and added that to the centre
i made a huge bow with a dazzler and stuck that at the bottom of the frame

i think you can just about see the micro beads on the back ground here



the butterflies were cut again from the same card but i did not add micro beads to them as i wanted them to stand out against the back ground on the green stripe.





finished the card in the usual way faux pearls around the edge few gems under sentiment
think you can see the micro beads better now i raised the  butterflies up a bit to give dimension i don't like every thing stuck down flat .
the photo are not brilliant as the card was in cello ready to be packed off .
as soon as a card is dry i usually bag them to save them from getting dirty and dusty. and i had forgot to take the pictures before doing this.
