Grungy Butterflies

I have entered this card into A Spoonful Of Sugar’s Weekly Challenge Ribbon, Rhinestones and Flowers. Flowers just didn’t look right, so I have substituted it with a spray with berries..I hope this is ok.
I have been wanting to do this tag card for some time.  
It is distressed, ripped, layered, grungy and, I hope, a little bit feminine still.  These are the colours that I love to use.  The inks are Distressed Inks, with the tag technique being the ink put straight onto the table, sprayed and then the tag smudged all around…three times (just to be grungy!)
The butterflies are done the same way on card, stamped, cut and then covered with stickles rock candy.  It doesn’t show up though in this pic. And the body is matt black rhinestones.
My collage effect is beginning to develop, slowly….
Enjoy! :)))

Wedding Card

The challenge was to make a wedding card for a friend’s sister. Well, what great timing ~ with valentines day not so long ago ~ I was able to get heaps of inspiration from all you talented bloggers.  Thankyou!  I bought this stamp because I thought it would go well with weddings, and new born babies and maybe even xmas.

This is the inside of the card.  I don’t usually do anything special on the inside, but I have been inspired by other bloggers to lift my game a bit. lol.  I have used some of the same embossed paper that I used on the front, along with the same template and hearts.
