Quadruple butterflies

This is my entry for the Butterfly Challenge this time. I always read it and often plan a card but they don't always get made. 
This was a nice change from Christmas cards. 
The challenge is Q for quadruple. I decided it had to be four butterflies. Not very imaginative really. 
I was absolutely not going to cut out the butterflies, they were going to be 4 in a row down the card. However, having stamped and coloured them and organised them everywhich way, you can see what happened:

This photo doesn't really show that the butterflies are embossed and then painted in with ink. Mountain Rose and Cranberry. I'm pleased with the effect of the cream card which was a happy accident as I discovered a snippet which I thought would look good embossed.
I also used some of the lovely design paper which I hoard and also several snippets so I'm jumping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground from which I have been awol for a few weeks. 
I took my room apart to do some decorating (boo) and though I thought I would manage to craft around the mess, of course I couldn't. It's not over yet the worst is yet to come.


  1. Very pretty card. Great layout too.

  2. I love this card with the butterflies in flight .Gorgeous colours which look super against the cream. A Wow card if ever there was one.
    The room I craft in is being redecorated next week so I have to decamp to the dinning room. It has been a long job. The new built in wall to wall units were fitted back in April and the new coving put up along with the remaining walls re skimmed last month. Feel like I have been in a suspended muddle for ages. Thank you for fluttering by my #43 . hope to see your newly decorated room when it is finished. hugs Mrs A.

    1. Sadly all I've done so far is the woodwork and the paper stripping so it will all have to move again when we decide on a colour. Yours sounds exciting, it'll be good to get it done.

  3. Really stunning card Alison! Those butterflies are gorgeous and the whole design is really elegant.
