Blue butterflies

I have spent a couple of hours catching up on my blogger friends cards etc, WOW they've been busy, and such beautiful work too. I am home today, I LOVE this semi retirement, hope I can keep to these hours though, just 16 a week. GREAT!  I think my bosses may have other ideas, I keep telling them I'm an old lady now, they say don't be silly, plenty of the years in the girl yet!, Oh! well I'll try and be strong and say no to more.

 I am posting a card for an Aunt I made a couple of weeks ago, because I haven't been blogging I have a few cards to show, at least it will keep me posting LOL.  It's a simple card but so effective in real life.  The images and border come from Audrey Jean Roberts' Blue Hydrangea 2 kit. All put together in PS and printed straight onto the card, then I added a 3D butterfly and added blue bling to the body, VERY quick card.


I'm going to enter these challenges with the card

What a pretty card Faith! I love the way your butterfly border is slightly paler than the three main ones. You stick to your guns at work - you deserve to do a bit of what you fancy now! Vicky x
