Butterflies and a Little Bird

Happy Easter and I hope there is sunshine in your world.  It's surely been a long winter for many of you.  Easter, for me is always an awakening of the earth from it's long winter sleep. 

For those who have not looked in on this challenge, it's fairly new and if you like butterflies, and who doesn't, this is a challenge for you.  It's easy to play along and every 2 weeks Mrs. A. gives us a new challenge.  Every challenge requires at least one butterfly, and then just to keep us on our toes, Mrs. A. adds a twist...this time we need to add a charm. 

I spent yesterday and today putting all the papers I'd dragged out over the past month(s) back into their bins.  While doing this I pulled out all the snippets and put them into a 12 x12 clear envelope.  My plan is to challenge myself by putting together cards from these snippets.  Some are quite large and some are very small.  This card, with the exception of the white base, is totally made from bits and pieces of paper and ribbon that were left from other projects.  When I saw the butterfly snippets, I knew I had the perfect place to post this card.  Might I say, I have taken a break from tidying up and made this card.  The sunburst card surely is a great way to use up snippets.  I must thank Di for pointing me in that direction. 

This is what the inside looks like.....
Well that's it for now.  I need to get off to bed...tomorrow will be a busy day looking for eggs.  Maybe I'll stay up just a bit longer to see if I can get a peek at the Easter Bunny.  If I see him, I'll post his photo.

Check out Mrs. A's challenge HERE
 and I'm going to link this card to Di's blog challenge HERE

Again, Happy Easter, Happy Crafting.  I have plenty of snippets, so.... I'll be back soon.

  4. Oh Mary, this is lovely and so good that you used snippets and also entered Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge! I do love the sunburst effect, not an original idea of mine though :)

  5. This is gorgeous Mary and silly as it might sound I have never thought of turning the sunburst on its side so to speak!! About to post colours on my blog not dissimilar to these. Great minds think alike!! Thank you for mentioning my challenge and for fluttering by #5. Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

  8. Hi Mary, lovely card - the sunburst is a fab way of using up snippets of paper. And the inside is lovely too. Elizabeth xx
