Shine on

Now, we have had some sunshine today but it has been joined by thunder, lightning, torrential rain and......hailstones!  What is going on?  I put the tortoise out in his pen when it was sunny so he experienced the other elements at first hand.  Didn't seem to bother him though.

The challenge at the Less is More Blog this week is to create a card using

Something Shiny

Lots of thinking time needed this week!  I found some gold paper so decided to use this and then there were the unopened Nestabilities label dies that I bought at Craftology in Glasgow a few weeks ago.



I cut a mask with the die first, then placed this over cream card before stamping the image. I used the same die as a template to draw around on the gold paper before cutting with scissors .  This created a larger shape than the die which acted as a border.  I then punched the butterflies from the same gold paper.   This was glued and assembled on  to a cream 15cm square card blank.  I hope this makes sense!

You made me laugh about the tortoise.... the image of hail bouncing off his shell is quite amusing :0)
