More Butterflies

I'm having a bit of a butterfly moment - perhaps it's because summer is here and everything in the garden seems to be growing.
I started this card by lightly spraying some gold and copper ink through a Memory Box stencil (texture rhapsody). When this was dry I stamped a Memory Box stamp (gathered blooms) with Versafine Spanish moss. I masked off the flowers and stamped the stems again upside down to give the gathered effect of the stems. To hide the join where the 2 lots of stamping meet I added a die cut Marietta buckle by Memory Box and a bow made from a scrap of ribbon. Sometimes when I don't have enough ribbon for a proper tied bow I make this knotted bow.  Some punched butterflies completed the card.
I am entering this into the:
 Memory Box challenge for June - butterflies
Craft Barn weekly challenge - bows


  1. Pretty card with lots of different textures.

  2. Lovely background. Also in a butterfly moment (I have one project in progress) but I think I have now reached butterfly fatigue!

  3. Loving the colours used here, thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
