MAWTT Challenge 52. . . . . .


Good morning guys and gals. Hope all is well with you.

I'm back today with a card for MAWTT  and this challenge, chosen by Diane Louise is.........
Things beginning with the letter B

So hope you can pop over to the challenge and see what the rest of the gals have come up with and, why not have a bit of fun and enter yourself.

Now, not being one to do things in half measures, I went for 3 Bs.........Buddlejas, Butterflies and Blue.


Ingredients
White, navy, purple and green card
Lilac paper
John Next Door butterfly stamps
Crafters Companion sentiment
SB Carnation Creation dies (leaves)
Tonic flower punch (punched many, many times lol!!!)
Tumbled Glass Distress ink
Grape Jelly and Lulu Lavender Memento Dew Drop inks
Yellow felt tip


I haven't done one of these cards for a long time so I thought that punch was due another workout.

That's me for now as its been a busy week at The Pond.

Don't for get check out the rest of the DT's inspiration over at MAWTT.

TTFN

  4. This gives the appearance of a CAS card Ang. But there's certainly nothing simple about this little beauty - unless it's "simply gorgeous"!
