The theme at By the Cute and Girly this month is "Warm Summer Days".
Butterflies and flowers always represent summer for me and I've used both in my card.
The flower and butterlfy stamps are from Crafty Individuals (sets CI - 207 and CI - 226) and the sentiment is also from Crafty Individuals.
I stamped the images using Tim Holtz distress ink "Walnut Stain". I stamped over a large area on a piece of cream cardstock and then chose the section I thought look best to cut with an oval nestability. I sponged on Tim Holtz distres inks "Dried Marigold" and "Spiced Marmalade". I painted in some of the flowers with "Spiced Marmalade" and then added some "Heirloom Gold" perfect pearls (although this doesn't show on the picture).
The punched butterfly uses an X-cut punch, and the top butterfly has been run through a script Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment has been punched out using Stampin Up! oval punches.
Thank you for taking a look at my card.
Hugs, Clare xx
