Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Butterfly challenge .. Tim Holtz Mozaic Stencil

Lobbing very quickly.. to post this card for my Butterfly challenge entry!!! Over HERE is Mrs A's challenge .. 
And the offering of this challenge has numerous options which immediately appealed to me .. I chose C for Corners and Cornflowers blue .. with the requisite Butterfly, of course! to my card.
CAS as was on time limit, plus my birthday girl likes CAS (even if she has no idea what CAS stands for!! :D).
 This was kinda CASED from one by Loll, on my Pinterest board under butterflies. Of course, mine is different - I rarely do a direct CASE.

So this card is made with 300gsm card, great to work with nice and smooth, and white.. took a snippet strip for stencil piece.

I'm not sure about UK, but in Oz cornflowers are very vibrant bright blue .. however from research it seems a soft blue was meant by this colour .. covered both shades by doing bright blue shimmer paints on butterfly and soft blue in TH Mozaic stencil ink. HB stamped greeting in same blue inks, unknown unmounted stamp (Victorine?). I used Versamark and mini misti to line up and achieve embossing on dye inks (Memento Sky Blue, Aronidack Cloudy Blue), gave wet embossed birthday greeting. I saw this trick somewhere (you tube?) but first time I tried it .. wow! it worked a treat will do it again! Now doing another card in Purple.
I die cut the rectangle with a stitched CCD set, largest rectangle die extended. added silver cut of Memory Box leaf die, with Joy butterfly on top and pearls.
May the Lord bless your day everyone .. and thank you most of all if you pop over for a peek and chat.. you are  blessing!
Hugs Shaz in oz.x

Such a gorgeous card,beautifully made and designed! I adore that mosaic stencil, it adds a certain something...bravo you! Cornflowers are the most beautiful blue aren't they? A favourite of the artist Vermeer I was told... They also come in whites, pink and I think purple? Your card is superb!
