Life is Like a Butterfly!

I just loved the Daring Cardmakers Challenge this week, i couldn't resist making something else along that theme! So here is a second entry to the challenge made with the beautiful (and charitable) 'Strength and Hope' stampset from Stampin' Up!

I used 'Crumb Cake' cardstock for the cardbase and stamped the beautiful butterfly in 'Crumb Cake' ink. I then embellished the butterfly with some 'Basic Pearls'. I also used some 'Greenhouse Gala DSP' on this card. The word sentiment has been printed using 'Crumb Cake' ink on 'Whisper White' card and them mounted on 'Baja Breeze'. A lovely simple card, that would be an ideal Get Well Soon card or maybe a Thank You card.

The 'Strength and Hope' stampset can be purchased in both clear and woodmounted and for every set sold £1 will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There are four stamps in this set, here they are:
If you would like to purchase this beautiful set or any other Stampin' Up! goodies then drop me an email: amyjtidd@gmail.com 

Thanks again to Daring Cardmakers for a wonderful challenge and to everyone visiting, commenting and following my blog!!

I have also decided to enter this card into the Cupcake Craft Challenge, this week their theme is 'in the garden'. I've got the challenge 'bug' ... haha get it... bug!! xx
