My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #128

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE which this week is set by the lovely WENDY - Secret Crafter herself (otherwise known as "THE BOSS") She has chosen a theme of:-

BUTTERLFIES

We want to see a butterfly somewhere on your creations.

I decided to have a play with the delish new stamps from CLARITY that are available now in SECRET CRAFTER SHOP. I used corner stamp in corners and to make the border and message from another set. Check them out HERE. The "blue pearls" are actually made using pearl opaque My Paper World pen but it absorbed the colour of the promarker ink when drying so dried blue - a happy accident LOL.

Take a lookey at the other girlies creations on the CHALLENGE BLOG and to join us.
