Back to A Again...

Good evening

Where has the weekend gone?  I'm so glad I have the week off work but no doubt that will fly too!  The weather is still pretty awful we had snow flurries off and on for a lot of the day but it's too wet to lie thankfully.

Tonights card is one I've made for the A-Z colour challenge over at Docrafts which is now back to the letter A again.  The colour choices this time around are either Aqua or Apricot.  As you can see I've gone for the Apricot option.  I am also going to enter it into the Noah's Ark challenge where the theme is butterflies.

The decoupaged image is one I picked up from Carole's Crafts it's unbranded but I thought it was quite pretty.  I've mounted it on a kraft card circle die-cut with an x-cut scalloped circle die.  The diamond and stripe 12 x 12 papers were a BOGOF cheapy deal from another local craft shop, again I have no idea what brand they are.  The other paler one is from the Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique range.  I've layered everything up with more kraft cardstock.  I've used kraft again to mount the LOTV stamped sentiment with a Spellbinders Lacey Circle die and for the butterflies which were die-cut using a free die that came with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine this month.  I've added ribbon and buttons, again, from the Cupcake Boutique range as well as various pearls and gems.

I really hope the weather is a bit better tomorrow and more befitting for a week off work!!!

Bye for now,
