One lucky person will receive Butterfly Blossoms from Flourishes.

We hope you'll join us and play along with our regular monthly inspirational challenge.
   Make a project using the following picture as your inspiration and Red, white and black. 





You could be the winner of a $30 gift voucher for Scrapbook Boutique.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





I've used a textile embossing folder and 'Stitched for you' from Flourishes for my card.  

Starting with some scored and folded red card for the base,  adding an embossed layer in white.
The image stamped and cut using a die from Spellbinders Small circles, was coloured with Prisma pencils.  A hand cut banner in black was also embossed using Cuttlebug's 'Circles and Dots' EF and wrapped in cotton twine.  Both the image and banner have been popped up using Scrapbook foam adhesive squares.

Thanks for calling past today, enjoy the rest of the Hop........and good luck!

Perfect match with the embossed background and the knitting image, it would make a great card to give with a handmade knitted gift. My mother is knitting at the moment but I can't remember the last thing I knitted... must be 20 years ago lol.
