Butterflies Flutter By!

I hope your having a great weekend so far. The weather is not just as good as it has been but its dry and hopefully the forecast for snow on Monday is wrong! One day we are basking in the sun, the next its to be so cold its to snow! British weather at its best!

I am here today with a card that i have made for the Belles n Whistles challenge of " Butterflies". I have used one of my favourite BnW stamps called "Patches n Braids" and coloured her with distress inks. 
Butterflies are also the challenge at Samuel Taylors this month. I use the packs of smooth paper from Samuel Taylors to colour with my Promarkers. I first bought a few packs at the SECC hobbycrafts show and haven't looked back since!
I have also used my Cricut to cut the fancy frame. I have to be honest i have not used my Cricut no where as much i should do. Like most of us crafters i had  to have a cricut and it had to be the expression as at the time that was the latest version out and i also had to have lots of cartridges....and yes... i hardly use it! I have decided that i am going to use it much more and when i looked through the cartridges i have i found cuts that i didnt know i had! I bet we all have a few things that we must have that are only used as dust collectors!!

Anyway here is my card....
