Hello again....... happy 'hump' day to you all!

I'm back with another card using one of the Tilda stamps from the Butterflies Collection.... I think this little beauty is everyone's fave, she's so sweet!
I really enjoyed colouring her and I think the muted shades of the gorgeous Kay&Co papers gave me a great head start!

As you can see I grunged the edges quite a lot.... I can't seem to make anything these days without distressing it, lol.... well I guess you just find your niche!

The creation is very 3-D again and I was happy to use my new Crealies leaf die to compliment the pretty flowers. And can you see I used some more cheesecloth (AKA bandage ROFL) behind the beautiful lace panel? I threw in a couple of punched butterflies to finish..... well it is Butterfly Tilda after all!!!

Here are the challenges I'm entering today:
