Playing with the new stash

Hello and a happy Wednesday to you. I had hoped (and tried) to upload this card on Monday for you - but my camera did not want to play the game. It just would not upload the pictures, ahhhhh how frustrating, but with some gentle coaxing in the way of a new set of batteries here we are.

This is the negative image card that I was talking about in my last post. That I had seen someone in blogland do (please forgive me but I do not remember who). It uses the small exotic butterfly dies from Cherry Lynn. I have added my little take on it as the one I had seen was only on a 10 x 15cm rectangle card and for some reason I just cannot do them anymore - I much prefer to work on the square cards (I can never fit all my bits and pieces on the rectangle ones).

 I have used kaiser duchess collection papers, along with some bazzill. The Cherry Lynn dies  #DL112, then a little bit of lace and ribbon from my stash. And a couple of really old carl punches for the little butterflies that you can see. I have also added a stampin' up sentiment and stamp. The bow is inspired by Kath from The cubby hole who is the most amazing card maker!!!!!!! It is actually two bows placed on top of each other and then I have also added an extra tail in there to balance it out.

This is the inside view - aren't these butterflies soooo cute. I brought them from Fat Cats Card corner who has super fast service for us here in central Queensland - I often get my parcels the very next day (which is unheard of here in the sticks).

Ok well I am off to do a little more study. The first term is nearly over.
 I do have a few other cards to show you but I will upload them over the next few days.
Have a great day
 talk soon
x joy

Hi Joy

I love this card, it's just beautiful! It is a shame it has 'Thank you' on it and not 'Happy Birthday' (Hint...Hint).
