Daring Cardmakers 'Flutterby'

Here's my card for the first Daring Cardmakers dare from Keilly who has set the challenge of creating a card inspired by this image on Pinterest. The card also had to include butterflies.

I had the idea to go for the botanical style. I started off with the scrap of paper with the roses(?) on it's a Websters Pages one. I then added the newsprint paper in the background and the card is from a Jenni Bowlin memo block. I thought it kind of looked like a collection of butterflies, like those old Victorian ones. The butterflies are from Etsy; I got lots for Quirky Kits in bright colours and the lady who makes them sent me some more samples, some of them I guess are moths as well as butterflies but I think they're pretty all the same :). The label stickers that make up the greeting are October Afternoon I cut out the shape with my pinked circles Nestabilities from a scrap of Crate Paper, (Portrait I think?). I just added a bit of stitching underneath.

Ready to have a go at this weeks dare? You've got from now until next Friday to have a go check out all the details here.

I always love your take on challenges, and this one is no exception. I love the 'butterfly collection' mixed with that gorgeous WP paper x
