Its been raining here for the last 4 days now , and not your usual April showers either, more like monsoon weather, The pets are bored and don't want to leave the sancuary of their nice dry home and have taken to taking turns in chasing each other round the house to kill the boredom. I, on the other hand have been beavering away in my craft room/loft and stamping, embosssing and creating to my hearts content . only stopping for 10 mins after a text from a friend asking for large wedding cards as someone at work is taking the plunge. This is a regular thing as all my friends know I sell my cards at Summer Craft fayres to feed for my crafty habit, and Its not usual to get a text saying 'Help!!!Rosie I forgot its So-n-So's birthday , can you do me a card for Tomorrow pls.....

Luckily I had a few to choose from and thought you may like to take a look ,most were constructed using the spellbinders and the Cuttlebug. the one above was made from some pink and Silver cardstock punched on the corners with a Martha Stewart punch called string lace lattice, and layered onto a white aperture card. I have used a holograpic pattened acetate I found at a craft fayre in the aperture and mounted the hearts and bells on to it.  The hearts were cut out on my cricut using the Sweethearts cartridge,as were the bells. The butterflies were some Hunky Dory pink foiled card Cut out using a Martha Stewart Punch and then layered onto silver holograghic silver card butterflie shapes Slightly bigger and then finished with a banner top and bottom from spellbinders added some peel off sentiments and a few pearls at the bottom. An easy card to make have that looks beautiful, so I'm told
This card was made the same way as for the pink card and but I changed the look by adding a silver shadow to the banners and adding an extra layer on the base. The butterflies were cut out of an  older marianne die, (Time to treat myself to some new ones, me thinks) and then I used a ordinary hole punch to get the circles on them. I also added some yellow gems to create a body on them

 here are a two others to check out, hope you are inspired by them
