Butterflies for Mum



The latest Compendium of Curiosities Challenge is Layering Stencils / Embosssing on Page 50. I decided to make a card for my mum who has her birthday at the end of December. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is the  sponsor of this latest challenge.

The technique has been used on my butterflies:


I then used the same stencil to create my background circles. Not sure about the colours now! Peacock feathers and rusty hinge -mmmmmm!!! However not sure mum would appreciate one of my usual grey designs.


Suffering with a cold here at the moment. Just a bit lethargic but giving me the opportunity to get a few desk related tasks completed. Hope you have a great day.
