Wedding butterflies

Hi Everyone, I am sitting here with a cardigan on, with the day looking like, apart from the flowers and leaves on the trees, a November day, dismal, but at least dry.

The washing I put onto the washing line this morning is as damp as I put it out, looks like I will have to use the tumble dryer, in the middle of July!  I ask you what is happening to our weather?  AND to cap it all my lovely SIL emails me and tells me she is sitting in the sunshine having a cuppa and watching tennis at Wimbledon, on the TV, how civilised is that?  I think we will have to move over to the East coast of England LOL.

Onto my card for today, a wedding card for a friend and as she loves butterflies, I had to include them.  Luckily I just happened to have a freebie cut file from Shirley's Cards HERE.  I resized it to fit an A4 card and used card I bought from Create and Craft, which wouldn't go through my printer, I forgot about it, until I was looking for some suitable card for this card  and it suited it beautifully.  The layered card is embossed with a butterfly folder from a magazine, which is ages ago and I can't remember which mag.  I added a silver circle covered with some net and their initials, then added more of the butterflies, I love how it turned out. Thanks Shirley for the freebie.

I shall enter the following challenges

http://oldiebutagoodiechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/butterflies.html  The net is years old, the file is from last year, the ribbon is nearly a year old, the silver card is well over a year old too. Oh! yes and so is the card. I can enter the challenge with a clear conscience.

Looks beautiful Faith, so pleased the template was of use. I'm sitting with my cardi on too but at least the forecast is good for the weekend. My kitchen is not completely finished yet but all the units and appliances are in so at least it's useable now. Having to wait for a replacement worktop so that's holding everything up at the mo - seems like nothing is ever straightforward !!
