Caardvarks colour challenge- More butterflies




Today is an absolutely gorgeous day - really spring like and I saw the Monarch butterflies flitting around the back yard while I was sitting outside having lunch. Great for mid August. I've told you I'm butterfly mad at the moment so it was great to be able to photograph my card for the Caardvark challenge this week, outside. - hence the lovely shadow on the card where the wings of the butterfly lift off the card.
The challenge is to use the sponser's main colours of hot pink, black and white.
I stamped the butterfly ( from Stamp it set 010) in Pink versacolour - once as the background and once to cut out the butterfly. I added black gems to the butterfly and 3 gems on the bottom. This was mounted onto black card and then onto hot pink card. I offset this onto the white card stock.
Sentiment is also by Stamp it - from set 012.
It reminds of the the lovely day today.
TFL - and have a great weekend

Dawn this is so lovely. You are making me want to break out that stamp set now :D. I love that particular stamp to bits & really should use it more often.
