Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I needed to make a card for the Butterfly Challenge, and this time around it is H for Hoops and or Harebell well I can tell you this really used up some of my brain cells trying to think of a card to make.
Mr Mojo was having a few tantrums as well.
So I finally got it all together last night, and I am quite pleased with it.

This is a 5.5"x 7" size tent card I made.
The image of the Harebell flower is off the internet, and I added some Glamour Dust to give it a glittery look.
The hoop is a frame covered with gems.
Now to the colouring on the edge of the card this really did give me a headache, but I finally inked the edges with two different inks to get the colour I was after.
They were Versa Chlk Ink Petuna, and Memento Brilliance Pearlecent Blue.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
