After an exhausting weekend it’s nice to get back to normal or as near normal as it can be in this house !
The ” Rock Star ” son has returned home after a very successful show in Athens they also had a half hour spot on the Radio and a promise of another large concert in Athens later in the year !
After catching up with all my missed sleep and feeling in a great and somewhat relieved mood I decided to enter the Craft-Room challenge who for the next fortnight has the theme ” Butterflies ” Now who can resist a butterfly ?? Not me that’s for sure !
I stamped onto white card stock using metallic silver ink one of my new distress stamps , of course don’t know who it belongs to as have thrown the packaging away ( as usual ) I printed onto Acetate an image from Designer Digitals and then edged it with very blingy silver lace. I made the butterfly by spraying the paper with perfect pearls and scrunching it all up then edged again in silver metallic ink. If that wasn’t enough bling I then added glitter to the top and bottom layers of the butterfly. The butterfly is a bit large for the card it is in fact a broach so can be detached from the card and worn.
For those of you that follow me regularly will know that I have a fixation for flowers and adding them to the top right hand corner of my cards have now progressed to insects but that corner is still looking so damn attractive ……..
I would also like to enter this into the challenge blog Stamp Something who’s theme is ” Wings and Things they have some fab inspirational pieces to get you in the mood !
Also do pop over to The Craft-Room and see what an amazing job the design team have done, you wont be disapointed !
Bye for now
P.S Zoe was going to enter it for the Just for Fun challenge but I think the digi might disqualify me !
WOW …what can I say this is beautiful! Makes me want to play along with this challenge but I cannot (not enough time lol!)….STUNNING

WOW – this is stunning – beautiful butterfly! And the top right hand corner is just the right place for him! Thanks for joining our Craft-Room Challenge ..Esther xx
LOL was thinking about JFF after reading this is Acetate and sadly think you are right. you know we love you at JFF and this an exquisite card perfect for Craft-Room Challenge but not the other. Now if you run your acetate through a die cutter with an embossing folder, or stamp it with a permanent ink like stayzon and/colour it with Alcohol inks (you know that little bottles of colour Neet urged you to buy) or even just screwed it up distress it and stuck stuff onto it…….Thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe
Gorgeous!The butterfly is so beautiful! Good luck Marie!

Just beautiful marie- love that butterfly in the corner- just stunning- thanks for all the lovely comments you've left on my blog- and thanks for joining us at Craft Room challenge- for my butterfly theme, Debi x
Looks like you'd better buy those skintight leather trousers now if you're going to be a rock star's mum! I love your new piece of art – you always seems to do things in a way no-one else has thought of – and I love that the butterfly is a detachable brooch. I've been amusing myself by thinking of all the things that wouldn't work in the top right-hand corner, but I've come to the conclusion that you could make anything work there! (Consider it a challenge Marie!) Vx
