The challenge over at One Stitch at a Time this week is White on White (or no designer papers). I made a birthday card for my friend so I hope she likes it. I used a large square card blank by Joanna Sheen. The embossed backing paper is made with a Crafters Companion Embossalicious folder. The image I got to use this week is Butterfly Fields by Tami of Gingerloft over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store. There are two images in the set. After I'd decided which image to use I printed it on to paper and it looked quite stark against all the white. I printed it again, this time on vellum from Create and Craft, and it's much more muted and suited to the embellishments. I cut it with my Spellbinders grand oval nestie and matted it on to the embossed sheet. The butterflies are cut with Spellbinders dies and the leaves are cut with Memory box dies. The large butterfly is set in the centre of another Spellbinder shape, the butterfly small nestie. I'm on a roll because this is the third card in a row that I'm actually pleased with so things are looking up!

I notice that I've lost one of my followers. :( I've had 151 for so long that I'd just become used to seeing the same number over and over again. Is it because my crafting has slowed down? I'm sorry that I'm not so prolific in my posts as I once was but I hope to get back into it at some point in the future. It's taking longer than I imagined but thank you to all my faithful followers who post on almost every card with some positive comment.
