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 2 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 very talented friends, and visitors.

I do hope everyone has a wonderful weekend as the weather has been mighty cold for quite a few days.

Managed to finish my card to enter the Butterfly Challenge at long last. 
 The challenge calls for J for Jewels, and or Jade.
So here is what I made not sure if colour is Jade though.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The die is a Nbus one which I bought recently.
The pearlecent card was paper which I used double sided sticky paper to glue it to card so it would die cut easier.
Behind the shaker part I used Pixie Powders on Ivory pearlecent card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make, they really boost my day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Speechless looking at this Jenny. It is truly stunning. The background papers are perfect against the die cut. Love that BTW. Another masterpiece. Thankyou for fluttering by challenge. hugs Mrs A.

I thought I'd already left a comment but cannot see it! Anyway I love the shaker card and how you've used those butterfly die cuts rather than leave it plain (if you see what I mean)

Quite a gorgeous & fancy card with the wonderful die with the butterflies on that lovely frame. The color is very jewel like and I've seen some jade that looked this color....It's beautiful too. I like the delicate lace as you've used it with the sparkling rhinestones too. It's just stunning! TFS & Hugs

Your card is stunning beautiful, Jenny. I love that butterfly die, it is really special. The bow looks fabulous and the inky inside pages are so pretty! I think the colour jade is visible in the inky pages.
