Soft Sky and a Butterfly

Soft Sky and a Butterfly

It's been ages since I entered a card making challenge, 
I came across the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge this morning.
There challenge #84 is a "tic tac toe" challenge which ends on the 5th of February.
you can find the challenge by clicking here!
To use the Tic Tac Toe grid above 
you simply choose a line and use those elements on the challenge card
The top line of the grid shows "blue, embossing, sequins"
which fits fabulously with a card I have been designing
for my first Card & Cuppa event here in St. Annes
I love the colour combo of Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White
I wanted to use my new Butterfly Thinlits dies.
along with the butterfly stamp in the Butterfly Basics stamp set
Soft Sky is a pale blue colour, 3 sequins adorn the card 
the Square Lattice Embossing Folder 
was used to give texture to the pennant
so I have met the requirement for the challenge
all of these products are from Stampin' Up.

Can you see the stamped lace at the very bottom of my card?
look behind the strip of lacy trim
this was stamped using whisper white craft ink and
the delicate details set of stamps shown below.
This stamp set "Delicate Details" is from the 2017 Sale-a-brations catalogue
any of my customers can get this set free of charge
 ***YES FREE!!!***
when they spend £45 on Stampin' Up products
from any current catalogue or clearance rack
(not including postage charges)
for each further £45spend  there are other fab free items to choose from too!

If you really like this card and you live near Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, England
then the good news is that this card will feature in my
 Card & Cuppa event
at Mooch1 in Garden st St. Annes
drop in on Monday 13th of February
between 1.30 and 3.30 pm
to make this card and enjoy a nice cuppa 
for just £5
You will recieve a kit and the use of my stamps and equipment 
to complete this card
all the cutting and scoring is done 
and the sentiment can be changed if desired.

well that's my card for today 
 I am already thinking of some slight changes
like colour, embossing folder, sentiment and the square 
but hey that's what gives me such a buzz

 I am here to help
