Butterfly Tilda flying by


Sorry I haven't been around much this week, I think we're finally in summer vacation mode here!  I did manage to finish this card I started last week, in the middle of re-organizing my craft room, and cleaning the whole house!


I'm still practicing colouring folds, it's an on-going endeavour :)  I've used some Dazzling Diamonds on the trim of her dress, and Diamond Glaze on her shoes, as you can see in the close-up!


The papers are from Echo Park's Country Drive line.  The butterfly is a die from My Favorite Things.

I think I'll be taking a blogging vacation for the next week to spend some fun summer time with my kids, so if I'm not around, don't be surprised!  :)

Hugs,
     Christine
