Watercolour Butterflies

Good Morning,

Well we have finally moved house and most of my crafting boxes have been unpacked, so I am hoping to be back to normal blogging service soon.  I am so missed sitting at my craft desk working away, but the big bonus is the new house already had an office fitted so I have claimed it as my craft room!

I finally got a chance to sit down and make something for a couple of challenges this morning, not sure of the end result, but thought I would share it anyway.

Supplies Used:
Uniko Studio - English Country Garden- Butterflies
Uniko Studio - Chrysanthemums
Embossing Powder

Challenges Entered:
Less Is More - Watercolour
Muse - Challenge 73

Beverley from Uniko Studio is the Guest Muse this month and here is her stunning card.  I used the layout and stamp as the inspiration for my card.

Thanks for visiting
