Simply 'With Love'

Hello and Welcome!
It's been rather cool here and my little wood fire
has been burning to keep me warm inside.
What better way to spend a little more time
playing in my craft room.

I mentioned in an earlier post I was hoping to 
make another card for the Gelato/Crayon Challenge
at CAS Mix Up before I heading north for a few weeks.
I did just that!
There has been sooooooooooo many challenges
using butterflies they seem to be flying
all around my craft room.
The one I used here wasn't what 
I was going to use but the spare one I had left over
from creating for another challenge was too big. 
I started my background with a stamp from
Katzelkraft which doesn't have a name on it
using Prima Marketing ink in Bare.
I then cut out a frame and filled it with gelatos
in Metallic Mint and Gold Champaigne
rubbing it in with my finger. 
I then cut out a few flowers from
Tim's Wild Flower Dies in the same colours
and adding a soft peachy colour.
Attached them to the background and 
popped my frame.
My butterfly was cut from a Cheery Lynn
die from gold metallic paper
and the SB sentiment the same.

My Mix is Gelatos, Die Cutting and
Lucky for me I stamped my background. Phew!

That's me for today.
Thanks for dropping in.

Beautiful make Ina! Agreed - one can never have too many butterflies! This one is beautiful in gold and I'm loving the distressed frame.

Fabulous effect with those gelato's and the most wonderful colours. That background stamp looks great too, along with the die cut flowers and that ever so pretty butterfly. Thank you for your continued support over at The CAS Mix Up Challenge.

Absolutely love the gelato frame you've created for your beautiful butterfly card, Ina. It looks like antique metal. Thanks for sharing with us again at CAS Mix Up. Have a wonderful trip! xx

Your frame is beautiful colored with gelatos! The metallics are my favorites! The wildflowers are so pretty matching the frame with the one to contrast! And that butterfly is a perfect fit for this card! Thanks for sharing with us again at CAS Mix Up!

A lovely card, Ina! I love those wonderful colours! Must try out some gelato colouring. My last effort was disastrous! Keep warm and enjoy your trip away!
