Butterflies and Flowers

Evening all, we are back to rain today, it's been miserable and grey up here all day. I do hope it's going to be a bit brighter tomorrow because I'm off to visit my son and I like nothing better than going for a walk with him and the dog so fingers crossed.
I decided to make this aperture card today, just for something different, and I am entering it into
4 challenges.
1. High Hopes: who are looking for polka dots and lots of them
2. Flutter by Wednesday: Danni wants fairies or butterflies, I've certainly given lots of butterflies this time Danni
3. Pile it on: who requires three embellishments and that your card be entered in at least one other challenge.
4. Whimsy Stamps Challenge: The theme this week is Birthdays, it can be anything to celebrate a birthday, a gift or scrapbook page, card, etc. They also have a fab new award for
the top three projects. so pop over and have a peek.
You can access all the above challenges by clicking on the challenge name

I used Clare Curd signature range for the backing paper and Blueberry Hill for the inside and then cut the flowers out for the decoupage on the front of the card. xcut dimensions punch for the butterflies, ribbon gems and sentiment from my stash.

Thank you so much for coming to visit me, I really appreciate it and love to read your comments,
hope you all have a nice day tomorrow.
