Hi.....i'm alittle late posting today...that's because i made the card i'm sharing with you today a couple of hours ago...i wasn't going to post it untill tomorrow...but my son's just asked us if we will have our grandson tomorrow and i'm not sure what time and if i will be able to get on the here it is....
I've used a stamp i won last week on the PENNY BLACK AND MORE CHALLENGE...that will be one of the challenges i will be entering it into...i will list the challenges at the bottom...

Before stamping the image Penny Black "Butterfly Suite" i created my background using Pan Pastels (Burnt Sienna Tint and Hansa Yellow Tint),i blended the two colours with a sponge.....the two colours are not showing too good in the photo :(....i used the Pan Pastels so that i could rub out the areas i wanted to colour with a using bleach on inks.....and then i used Promarkers and Prisma Pencils....i stamped the image again so that i could 3d the flower head and the two butterflies.
The aperture was created using a Spellbinders circle die....and the "Thinking Of You" sentiment is from a Marianne Designs Collectables  Stamp and Die set...

I'm entering the following challenges :-
PENNY BLACK AND MORE..."Dies and Punches"...only used two hope that's ok.
CUTE CARD THURSDAY...."Oranges and Lemons"....hence the colour scheme.
ROBYN'S FETISH..."Things With Wings".
INCY WINCY DESIGNS..."Things With Wings".
TOP TIP TUESDAY...."Hexagons and/or Circles.
AUD SENTIMENTS...."Sympathy or Thinking Of You".

Well thats all for to have a cuppa,
Take care
