Before I start today's post, I've had a few new followers join me recently, so I would just like to say 'Hello and welcome' to them, and also to say thank you to the loyal band of followers that I have for their continued friendship and support. It really means a lot to when I read all the lovely things that you say and I appreciate that you give your precious time to leave those comments, so thank you.
I had a lovely surprise on Friday to find that I had won the March challenge over at Stamping Sensations with this card, lucky me :) This was the very first challenge that I won when I started blogging back in 2015, so to have won it for a second time is amazing, as was the prize that I won, which is a fabulous selection of dies by 'Tattered Lace.' Many thanks to Brenda, who runs the challenge and to her wonderful Design Team for thinking my card worthy of winning, I feel truly honoured.
I'm here today to share a card with you that I made for a special lady who's birthday was in February. I'm pleased to say that she loved the card and I hope that you do too.
I stamped the Bigz Butterfly from Inkylicious in Versamark and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, I then used an acetate print of the same butterfly and used gilding flakes on the back, which allowed all of beautiful metallic colours to show through. I really like the way that the acetate gives the butterfly dimension and movement. The sentiment is also by Inkylicious, heat embossed with the gold again, and I think the corner die is by Memory Box.
I would also like to enter this car onto the following challenges:
