Butterflies and Poppies

Gosh, all day I have been thinking it is Tuesday, but is Wednesday. 
Where are the weeks disappearing to?????

I would like to welcome to some lovely ladies who have become new followers. 
Thank you for doing so, and I hope you enjoy your visits.

Because it is Wednesday, we have a new challenge for you at Penny's Paper Crafty,
and our theme this week is

(ribbon, trim, twine, lace, etc)

Thank you to our 2 lovely sponsors this week. They are:-

I was given this pretty tag, For You Butterfly Tag from Bugaboo.
I coloured it with my Promarkers (that took all of 5 minutes),

this is what I created with it.
Two of the die-cuts are from dies that my lovely English blogging 
friend, Pauline, sent me. They are the large butterfly by Joy Craft, and the
tulips by Memory Box. The smaller butterfly is Cheery Lynn. I smothered
all 3 die-cuts to within an inch of their lives with Star Dust Stickles.

A closer look at the 3 die-cuts, and the lace and white ribbon border.
Inside my card matches the front. The gorgeous paper is New Arrival,
by Forever Friends. It is heavily glittered. My layering of the Spellbinders 
Classic and Scalloped Ovals looks uneven here but is not in reality.
