Butterfly card

Hi everyone.
 I was really pleased to have one of my cards picked top five in a Fussy and Fancy Challenge and invited to be Featured Guest Designer. I was unable to do it at the time but Sheri at the challenge blog very kindly asked me to be it for a later challenge.(It is me they've featured despite getting a new surname :D!) So here's my card for the new Challenge with the theme Bingo Board. It's a bit late but I didn't see the email saying it was going on the blog until late but better late than never :). I hope you like it.

A better shot of the gilding wax on the butterfly....

and the inside....

The sponsor for the challenge is Live and Love Crafts who are so generous to offer a £10 gift voucher to spend in their online store. As the owner Sandra is starting a new life adventure they are sadly closing so there are many bargains to be had from their fabulous selection of goodies.

Card Ingredients.
6" x 6" Shaped Card- Craftwork Cards.
Papers- Anna Marie Designs 'Blissful Pink', 'Blissful Cocoa' and 'Blissful Green' paper pads.
Cardstock- Create and Craft 'White Linen card'.
Dies- Spellbinders 'Les Papillions Two'. Polkadoodles 'Bubblelicious Frames'. Creative Expressions 'Laurel Leaves'.
Lace- Live and Love crafts.
Ribbon- The Hobby House.
Cheesecloth- Anna Marie Designs.
Ink- Distress ink 'Walnut Stain'.

Glitter Stamens- Anna Marie Designs.
Pearls- Anita's
Cosmic Shimmer- Gilding Wax 'Pearl Lustre'.
It was great to make a card without a stamped image for a change and a chance to use the new dies from Polkadoodles. I went a bit mad on their site so you'll be seeing a few more of their dies.
I'll be back on Wednesday with the new challenge at Crafting by Designs. See you soon.
