Special day with butterflies

Morning all.
What miserable weather.
I am sure it's supposed to be Summer and yet it feels more like Autumn.
Pouring rain and winds. Even had to put on a wooly jumper.
I have a card today created for this weeks Allsorts challenge
Theme is to add a butterfly. Nice and simple.
Hope you like it and thank you for looking.
Dies used are Spellbinders Tudor Rose card front and Marianne Designs butterflies.

Banner Birthday

Morning all.
I hope your day is as beautiful as mine.
The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the neghbours are drilling.
Ok so I hope you don't have the drilling.
Thumping headache for the last week doesn't help.
Still, onwards and upwards, at least i'm still breathing lol
Todays card has been created for the Allsorts challenge add a banner or flag.
Wouldn't you believe it, just when I need them I can't find my little banner die.
Absolutely typical but that wasn't going to stop me.
So instead of my pretty banner die I have cut triangles for the banner.
I had a pretty banner paper for the background and was able to cut the triangles from the excess to match.
It wasn't until I had finished the card that I noticed a huge error.
The paper is upside down lol
Oh well, I think it just adds character and at least I know it's different.
Would be boring if I was normal *grin*
The stamp is by Helz Cuppleditch and coloured with my new Spectrum Noir pencils.
Colours used are 007,028, 036, 041, 050, 061, 064, 065, 074, 087, 089 and 100 
They are so beautiful to colour with and easy to blend.
I don't have the blending solution or paper stumps so I just used my fingers.
White organza ribbon coloured with cool aqua promarker and a matching handmade bow.
Die used for the party time sentiment is Marianne Design LR 0141 finished off withe some bling and flatback pearls.

WOYWW #320

Good morning one and all.
Not a lot to say about my desk really but it is
a little tidier than it normally is lol
I wanted to have a go at the spotlight technique
so you can see my attempt at a topper but I
have to say I am not a fan of it.
Might have to give it another go just to make sure
I don't like it and it's not just because I am crud at it LOL
I have my Tudor Rose card die set out as I am about to
test it out for the first time. Not sure what to create
with it yet but hopefully I can come up with something.
Don't forget to pop along to Miss Julia to see what this
WOYWW is all about. Be warned though it can get
a little addicting.
Appologies about the poor picture.
The lighting today is horrible.
