Butterfly Challenge #21 - Thank you with Butterflies

Well, this is just one butterfly so I hope it qualifies for Mrs A's butterfly challenge this fortnight:

I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blank

- Penny Black Stickeroos from the 'Flower Festival' sheet. Love the water coloured look of this particular set of Stickeroos - and for anyone who hasn't played with them, they're really lovely stickers, many are based on Penny Black stamps and they're great for fast cards

- then just rounded the bottom right corner using We R Memory Keepers corner Chomper

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy - reckon this card took all of five minutes - tops! Why not hop over to Mrs A's and join in - there's a prize to be won.

Deep joy yesterday, the hospital gave the the all clear on the eye problem! Whoop, whoop :)

Happy for you that your eye is better. Love your card but would never have guessed they were stickers. When I saw it my first thought was ' I wonder where she got the stamps from!' x

Gorgeous card and don't worry about the lack of Butterflies, there is certainly enough here for me, gorgeous colours, somehow the song One eyed, one horn flying purple people eater came to mind but not really apt now as you have got the all clear, what the heck are me and Sarn going to plot about now.
No really well chuffed that you have got the all clear.
Have a great weekend.

So good to hear that the eye problem is all cleared & I know you are tickled pink (can I just say that?!) You are amazing with these PB stickers...haven't seen this one & love the tiny detail of the rounded corner. This image has a lovely watercolor effect and lovely to send over to Mrs. A's B'fly challenge. Hugs to Parsnip, hope he is keeping you warm if it's as cold your way, as 'tis here in SC. Happy wkend.

I keep forgetting I have PB Stickeroos in my stash. I love this one to bits and its a new one for me too. A nice CAS card. Glad to hear you have the all clear on your eye problem but not so good for us in the playground cos we can't get up to so much mischief. Twasn't me wot tied the swings up together at the top of the post or made a hole in the saucepan roasting chestnuts over the fire we accidently started. Oooops. I never told girls, honest. Thankyou for fluttering by #21. hugs Mrs A.

Fast card? And it is beautiful, if required at least a few hours of painting with watercolors ...:-) Lovely and very romantic card.

and I am delighted that with your eyes is all right. It's hard to do delicate cards with small details, when you do not see well. I am pleased that we will continue to admire your wonderful cards
