Monochromatic for Mrs A!

I truly didn't think I'd manage to join in the current Butterfly Challenge over at Mrs A's - I had cards in the pipeline for other challenges that I always play along with and my first butterfly attempt of a purely black and white card last week didn't follow the rools so I didn't enter it. However, where there's a will there's a way and this is what I finally made:

I used:

- 5" x 7" card blank, made using SU's 'Wisteria Wonder'

- plain purple card

- patterned card from Papermania's 'Heather' Capsule Collection

- MFT 'Bracket Edge' die

- Memory Box 'Fresh Foliage' die and purple card stock

- Memory Box 'Pippi' and 'Isabella' butterfly dies plus purple and SU  'Wisteria Wonder' snippets

- sentiment from the Personal Impressions 'Everyday Words Happy Birthday' set, stamped using Adirondack 'Purple Twilight' punched with SU's 'Word Window' and layered onto a punched SU 'Modern Label'

- final touch, some mauve sparkly gems on butterflies, sentiment and bottom left of card

- and very final, final touch - rounded off the bottom right corner

This is just beautiful Di! All those patterns, the script, and the die cut butterflies look stunning. Of course it's purple, and all purple is stunning to begin with :)

Another lovely mono card for Mrs A. Really, reallyl love that beautiful background, with the pretty posies and the delicate flutterbees perched on the stems. The shaping of the papers added so much to the total look. Well done! TFS & Hugs
