2 more cards, 2 more challenges!!

Hi everyone. Haven’t had a chance to get on and blog for a couple days and have not had my blopping fix either. We were away up to The Lakes at the weekend and had a fantastic couple of days. The weather was lovely for a change!! I am dying to get round everyones blogs but have only really had time to look at the little thumbnails of everyones work on my blogroll. Will try and get round for a proper visit tomorrow!

This evening I have been playing with Steph’s Papertrey Ink stuff again. The challenge for this fortnight over at A Passion for Papertrey is to make a single layer card but you can add ribbons and embellishments etc. My entry is the square card in the photo made with strips of ribbon (mostly from my Raspberry Ribbons kit) and one of the butterfly stamps. The stamps, card and the brown satin ribbon are all PTI. I’m not 100% sure if this qualifies as a single layer card since I put my image over the top of the ribbon but I’ll enter it anyway, I had fun making it which is what counts (!!). The other card is taken from the sketch at the Raspberry Ribbons Sketch challenge. Again it is using PTI papers and butterfly stamp. On both cards I have stickled the butterflies in orange.

Right, I guess I should get to bed seeing as my eyes are now falling out from tiredness!!!


  1. I love this orange…doesn’t get used enough really, does it!
    Also love butterflies! Beautiful cards. Look forward to seeing more of your work with Raspberyy Ribbons sketches…
