Challenge #47 Blossoms &/or Butterflies

Hi Everyone,
Seems the inspiration collage last month was a bit daunting as we had fewer entries than usual, but nonetheless many gorgeous cards and projects, so thanks everyone who took part. 
The randomly drawn winner is...

Congrats to Beatriz of Beas Scrapbooking!
Here's Bea's pretty card:

 This month we've got a really easy theme... blossoms and/or butterflies!
You don't even have to include both on your card/project; one will do.

Here's the Design Team's Inspiration:
(For this month's challenge we're a bit thin on the ground with two vacant DT positions, but I hope to be able to announce who will be filling these spots here on the blog tomorrow).


SANDY

Now it's your turn!

An Hydrangea Card and a Video♥

Hello There
Debbie here today and Ive a little video Tutorial to share..
Nothing exciting as I'm only a very beginner but it was fun to do.
Its only 7 mins so hopefully wont bore you too much :D

I think my phone did ok :D.....apart from re-focusing in parts.

I just lovemaking my own flowers and have always wanted to attempt an Hydrangea.
A little fiddly but the Sizzix die helped a lot because there wasnt as much die cutting involved as a single flower would have done.

and I could resist using Maja's new papers 'Vintage Romance'....Just LOVE 



I used DooHickeys from the Vintage Box 1, also the Tassle and Rose Leaf die.

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by..

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend 
Hugs
Debbie ♥ xx

Fly ♥︎

Hello, everyone! It's Karen here sharing a card with Pion Design's beautiful Scent of Lavender collection. I also had a play with some new LLC goodies and am in love. ♥︎
The purple florals from Scent of Lavender are especially beautiful, which I paired with two shades of Pion's heavyweight Palette collection: Purple I and Purple IV. Ruffling along the bottom is the new Shabbylicious Ruffle Lace, which is my new favorite! I want to put it on everything in my house. ♥︎
Sandy has added so many gorgeous products to her store and I am very excited about the Wycinanka chippies. The focal point of my card is from their Spring Circles set, upon which I layered Pion butterflies. Of course my project is ruffling with love, so I tucked a small part of the Background Hearts within the lace. All of the chippies on my card are embossed with Shabby White Frantage.
Fly is from Wycinanka's Make Art word set, which rests above a sprinkling of Background Hearts. Woven within my Wild Orchid Crafts arrangements is lovely pearl garland. The garland is available in several gorgeous colors.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend! ♥︎

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
