Purple Butterfly

Hello my lovelies how are you all today? Well my youngest is back at school today tho he not pleased as he doesnt want to wait til tonight to play on his new xbox game lol. He feels better tho, I think his girlfriend coming up last night did the trick lol.
Well I've had a few orders recently for cards so I thought I would show you 1 of them. I did this one last week I've made one before so I was asked to make another one in shades of purple as its her mum's fave colour.

The paper is a mixture & I've embossed each layer with different embossing folders. All edges have been inked with Milled Lavender distress ink.

Flowers from Crafty Emma's. Crochet flower I made & the pearls & purple butterfly are from my stash.

I made a matching box lined it with doilies for a nicer presentation.
The lid I use acetate but the first 1 I wasnt happy with & I had used my last sheet of acetate so I put my thinking cap on & instead I got my laminator out & laminated a sheet cus then they go clear & toughen up as well. Voila 1 see through lid.........just  as good as acetate but easier to wipe any finger prints off.

A sparkly feathered butterfly from my stash........getting low on these so need to remember where I got them from eeeek!!

Last piccy of card inside the box. All card used is A4 card from Papermill Direct the one I've used has a suede feel finish, its gorgeous when you feel it. I got this a few months ago so not sure if they still do the 'suede feel' card as it was a special.

Well thats it I'm off to the hospital then off to buy 2 xbox games, yep hubby wants the new Call Of Duty as keeps them good lol.
Thank you for stopping by I'm half way through catching up with you all will come & finish my hopping later.
Huge hugs to everyone mmwah xxx

Challenges I'm Entering..........
Will have a peekskie to see what there is later lol.
