Baby it's cold outside

Its a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly and it's Baby it's cold Outside...what an apt theme for a snowy start to the week :)

For my card I used a Memory Box die and painted the edges of the die with Tim Holtz acrylic paint dabber and ran along the edges of the paint with glamour dust. I then wrapped button twine around the card and added a couple of wooden beads.

Anything but a card...

Anything but a Card is the theme at CCC  , simples......We have a fab sponsor for this weeks challenge over at Cupcake Crafts with Pink Gem -offering 4 images of the winners choice .

For my project my pen holder went from this

to this

Its been a horrible week for me.... in bed  for 4 days with a virus that made me want to chop my head off, think of temperature, achey limbs and shooting pains in the back of the head going off every three seconds. Torture..
So I had a Birthday that came and went in bed.

Hope this week is better and the blighter does not return.

I absolutely love My Favourite Things store and all that they have but especially love the Pure Innocence range of stamps which I seem to use all the time lately.

For this card I followed the sketch found on the MFT blog. The Stamp is called Butterfly Kisses. I paper pieced her clothing and put a generous amounto of White glossy accents on her wings.

The paper is a freebie from the Molly Bloom booklet and the word paper is digital from Raspberry Road .
The button twine is from The Ribbon Girl and the butterfly charm is from my stash which I have had for years !

I am entering this card into two challenges:
