Butterfly wishes

I am always on the look out for materials that I can use in my crafting that have no cost attached to them. I have several previous posts that have detailed various items that I have recycled. So I was happy to join in with the Cornwall Crafty Stamper Challenge. The theme is Recycling and this is my card.



I used a paint shade card that I had kept from deciding the colour for my bathroom walls and cut butterflies using my MS punch. There is no need to search around for different papers or card that tone with each other. Dulux did it for me! I attached them to a white strip of left over card and then mounted this, using 3D foam pads to a mottled grey piece of card. This had begun life as the backing card from a packet of embellishments - I knew that it would come in handy. The stamp is one that a kind Ebay seller sent me for free when I purchased some stamps from her. I finished it off with a little "bling" in the form of flat backed jewels - I did purchase these . So ...... all in all.......... a very low cost project.


As Crafty Susy has a butterfly themed challenge , I will pop this over on her site too.
