An oldie but goodie

The CD-ROM I used for this card is a very old Sharon Duncan one from 2009 called Beautiful Butterflies. CDs seem much more sophisticated these days, with more interactivity, higher resolution and a much bigger range of images. Nevertheless, I keep coming back to this one over and over again because the butterfly images on it are so lovely.

I had actually set out to make an easel card with this set of toppers and background, but then I pointed out to myself that I always seem to make easel cards with this CD and it was about time I did something different. After a bit of arguing between Me1 and Me2, one of us won and I made a large 20cm square card instead. I'm still not 100% convinced it was the right decision though - I love easel cards and these images are perfect for them.

The cream and gold card is a scrap from an old Hunkydory kit and I've added some delicate gold butterflies cut with a Memory Box die.

I am sharing this with
Cuttlebugmania - Have wings, will fly
Butterfly challenge - Decoupage and/or Gold (the decoupage is only one layer on each butterfly bit it IS there!)

  2. Well whichever 'me' won I'm glad she did as this is fab. I have some Sharon Duncan cd's but sadly not this one. I like your finished card. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. I did laugh at you arguing with yourself! This turned out beautifully, I agree those butterflies are gorgeous. Cara x
