It's the little things....


Good afternoon, hope you've had an enjoyable weekend. Here's a quick card from me made with this week's challenge at LIM in mind. The theme this week is 'Little ones', which can be interpreted any way you like. To make my card I embossed a piece of white vellum using an embossing folder from craft concepts called Butterfly kisses. I gently swiped some blue distress ink over the top of the embossed butterflies to make them stand out from the white. I punched 2 tiny butterflies from the vellum which I had coloured with the same blue distress ink, folded up the wings and stuck them in place over 2 of the embossed butterflies, then added a couple of tiny pearls to each. The frame is die cut from a piece of metallic cardstock in a beautiful shade of silvery blue, unfortunately the colours don't look good in the photo....roll on summer, when we can take photos in daylight!
Thanks for looking!
Chris
