Just Us Girls Challenge #551~Wild Card Week...Happy Birthday Butterflies

Hello,

I'm delighted to be your hostess for our Just Us Girls Challenge #551, where I've selected BUTTERFLIES as our *wild card* prompt! We're still seeing them flitting about here in Alberta; pretty, colourful signs that summer is still here...at least for a few more days!


A huge THANK YOU to Lisa Elton, from mypapertales, for being our guest designer this month! Her wrap up card: sheer delight! Hope you enjoy gazing at and admiring her pretty card, as well as all the beautiful creations by the rest of the team: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria and C├ęcile. If you have a chance to leave comments, that would be a real treat.

Yes...another slimline, this time featuring one of my favourite Concord & 9th sets: Butterfly Beauty. I love the faux water-colour look of the background images. A simple sentiment, some Studio Katia gems and...done!


Looking forward to seeing your butterfly-inspired cards/projects in the gallery!

Love your card, that butterfly is gorgeous. Love your challenge theme but am unable to join in as there is no linky and nowhere to leave a comment! Just thought you might not have realised. x
