Pastel butterflies

This week at Less is More it's a recipe challenge, and the recipe is to use snippets, in honour of the guest designer, Di, who hosts the weekly Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge. And it's a celebration, too, as it is Chrissie's 70th birthday, so I wanted to make sure my offering included a birthday greeting!

One of my most frequently used dies is this sweet little Spellbinders butterfly. This time I've cut it in pastel shades from my snippets box roughly approximating to the colours of the rainbow, and combined it with pastel coloured twine and a birthday greeting stamped with a Kaleidacolor "Birthstone" pad.

I am sharing this with
Less is More - Snippets
Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge - Use Some Ice Cream Shades
Allsorts Challenge - add a butterfly

Oh this is a FABULOUS way to use those pesky snippets which (like coathangers in a wardrobe) seem to breed the minute you're not looking!!!


Di said...

Ooh Jane, this really is lovely! Look forward to you showing it in the Playground and thank you for the sweet words. Truth be told I'm still pinching myself here!

Fabulous card, Jane! How spooky, I was thinking of a few ideas for the LIM challenge today and came up with an idea of butterflies in the colours of the rainbow flitting over the card and had got as far as sorting out the snippets I needed.... then I saw your post this evening! I'll need to think again! xx
