Butterflies and flowers for Mrs A

Squeezing in with a third entry, the day before Mrs A's first Butterfly Challenge closes. I suspect we might have had a gentle introduction as we only had to use one or more flowers and of course one or more butterflies:
I used:

- 7" x 5" white card blank

- pre-coloured image from LOTV's fabulous 'Cute Cottage Garden' Art Pad, die cut with a Nestie 'Labels Eight' die and layered onto SU's 'Primrose Petals' backing 

- the sentiment is a discontinued Elzybells one, stamped directly onto the image using VersaMagic 'Pink Petunia' ink pad

- white card, embossed using Anna Griffin 'Rosa' embossing folder with the corners rounded

- a snippet of SU's 'Primrose Petals' card stock, punched round using Martha Stewart's 'Vintage Lace' Punch Around The Page (PATP for short!) set

Bated breath here, waiting to see what the next challenge theme is - I'm sure it's not gonna be as easy if I know Mrs A. But hey, that's half the fun - being S - T - R - E - T - C - H - E - D.

  14. I'm all for being stretched if it means I will be taller and thinner!

  15. Fabulous card Di, love your layout and the use of the embossing folder.
    I bought this pad a couple of weeks ago and made a couple of cards last week but when I saw this card I thought, I don't recognise this image so just checked my pad, yes it is there doh.
    Hope you are well.
