Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends and visitors.
I'm off to have my hair cut this afternoon so my mane will look a little tidier for a while.

So on to my Butterfly Challenge card which I made last night.
This time around they want to see Texture, and or Teal.
So here is what I decided to create.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used the Sue Wilson Layering Dies again.
The center die is another Sue Wilson one The Classic Adorned Squares, and then I used the Sue Wilson Weaving Die.
The Butterfly Die is one I won in the Challenge a while ago.
Added some Glamour Dust to give it a little sparkle.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is beautiful Jenny for two reasons actually, it appeals to my sense of symmetry and order and I absolutely love the colour, I wore a beautiful gown made in teal satin when I was matron of honour for my Sister 25 years ago!! xx

Patricia said...

Brilliant card Jenny, you have combined the two requests with great results.

Hi Jenny, love the design & colour of this card. You are a lady after my own heart.....I love using Sue Wilson noble dies, especially on my stitched cards. I think these dies really set off the cards nicely, without being "in your face" if you know what I mean. Janice x

Such a clever checkerboard design to meet this teal butterfly challenge. I'd say you have lots of texture (& jewels!), lovely teal, and glorious prize butterflies. Of course I'm always drooling over the SWilson dies, and how wonderfully it frames this pretty card. Big Hugs & TFS

Erika said...

Jenny, my favourite colour combination, love every aspect of this card. You can't go wrong in my eyes with teal and butterflies.

Hugs Erika. x
