HEXAGON EASEL CARD FOR THE BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my 
very talented friends, and visitors.

May I welcome my new follower, and thank you
sooooooo! much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you visit as often as you are able to.

Well here is what I came up with for the Butterfly
Challenge this fortnight.
The challenge letter for this fortnight is H for
Hexagon.


I cut out my hexagon shape card with scissors.
Then I glued my Butterfly paper to it.
The paper comes from DCWV Butterfly Garden
Paper Stack 12x12.
I cut out some smaller hexagons and layered them.
Then I added a leafy design to the top, that I had
coloured with a Promarker, and stickled glued it.
Then I went all around the edges of the card with
my Promarker to give it an edge.
Finally I added some lovely peach vellum butterflies.

Thank you for your visit, time, and wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate them.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following
challenges.

Hi Jenny
Good grief! You cut the hexagon with scissors? Would have looked like a scalloped hexagon if I tried that lol!
Beautiful card. Love the sparkly bits. Good luck in the butterfly challenge.
