'Favourite Things' Challenge by Sassy Crafts

A belated entry to Emma's intriguing challenge on the Sassy Crafts blog to produce a card using favourite things from current stash. Ooohh!! Luvly!!

So... the story behind this one is that I love lots of white space on a card, I adore black & white (although there is a subtle shade of colour on the stamped image for the eyes and lips), I love flourishes, bling, flowers, ribbons and butterflies (although my ribbon insect is kind of a butter-dragon-fly!! lol), and I love this stamp, too. The image has been cropped for this design.

I have other favourite things, too, like Funky Hand papers, Basic Grey 'stuff', brads, for instance, and snowflakes, but - well - you can't put everything on one card, can you? ;o)

To make the wings, just make two bows the same size. Pinch each of them in the middle, and secure them with glue in the centre.


  1. What can I say Chris just beautiful!

    Is that one, two or more stamps, they are so beautiful!!

  5. Thanks, ladies. :o) Nice to be back! ;o)

    Dawn, it's two stamps, and the scalloped edging is from inking the edges of white cardstock cut by a small scalloped rectangle Nestibilities die.

    The flourish is from a set of HOTP stamps.
