A very quick post as I'm staying in Southampton for a few days for a funeral. The latest theme at the Butterfly Challenge is Aperture and/or Apricot. This frame is one in my stash by Craftwork Cards and is a good few years old so gradually using up my stash.

Simple Gatefold

After making the magic slider card last week, my class wanted something simple this time and asked for a gate fold card. My sample is very simple (and easy enough with the cast on) using an image from Hunkydory's Little Book of Birdsong. My sentiment tag is made from this clothing tag and of course some ribbon "hanger" from my new top. A snippet of mint and white card for the butterfly

I go all the pieces cut out for this and put it together and took a picture but it didn't quite look right and the I found the white mat that should have been under the image! Luckily the topper was stuck on with foam tape which with a little help from the heat gun, came off easily

I'm entering this into the following challenges

Magic Slider

I've not been in my craft room much for the last couple of weeks as I fell over in the garden and broke my thumb so it's in a cast and not very easy to craft. I did make this magic slider card for my craft class last week though

I've used a Woodware bubble butterfly stamp and coloured it with Promakers and covered some of the bubbles with Wink of Stella. The acetate I used was packaging from an embossing folder so I'm entering this into the Butterfly Challenge which has the theme of Recycle and/or ruby
