THANK YOU CARD USING FREEBIE IMAGE FROM http://lily-boosboutique.blogspot.com




Good evening everyone
Sam at Lilyboos boutique has very kindly put a gorgeous freebie image on her site. Please visit her blog HERE as she is a wonderful artist and has some fabulous images.
On the Uk crafters thread this week we had a challenge to use one of Sam's images. I chose the freebie image as it was so pretty. The image is in B&W but I changed it to black and pink (pink being my fave colour!). I printed the image out on card then three times on acetate and cut out the little butterfly and popped it on top of the image and at the bottom of the card. I also added some gems and satin ribbon.The striped paper and the spotty card for the frame is printed from a Pink Petticoat CD and the thanks is a cuttlebug die which I cut 3 times in black card and glued together for extra thickness.
Thanks for looking
Hope you're all having a relaxing weekend!

Just wanted to say I only found your site today and it’s really cool. You’ve been very busy and have so many good ideas. Your creations are really cute. I write a London based crafty e-zine and blog named Extremely Crafty Ideas at http://extremelycrafty.blogspot.com/ Would love to hear what you think. You and some of the other card crafters I’ve recently found have inspired me to write an upcoming card craft e-zine!
