Simon Says: Butterfly Beauty


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


Simply include a butterfly somewhere on your project!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I made a spring tag to add to my collection ;-)

I love the Tim Holtz Melange Tissue Wrap and used this as the base for my tag. I glued a piece to a plain white piece of card and then die cut using a  Framelits Tag. 

I then used Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry Inks before splattering with White Linen Ink and stamping with some Wildflowers finishing with a die cut Wildflower Silhouette. 

I used a Butterfly Duo die and cut the butterfly out of corrugated card. I added some Bubblegum,  and Glacier White Paints at random and splattered with Black Ink. I stitched the edges and finished with a strip of  Industrious Borders and Small Talk Stickers.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


If you use instagram add  #sssmchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
