SCRSC40: Butterfly Cafe

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we have a fabulous photo to draw inspiration from:

I used my Cafe Lucy stamp for my card - I just love her! I chose to make a card with loads of elements from the photo - the floor (Kraft card), the butterflies, the flowers, the squares on the quilt, the colours!

As soon as I saw this photo, I just knew that my brand new Echo Park 'Springtime' 6x6 paper pad from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie was the absolute perfect fit for this card - my only dilemma was which of the gorgeous double-sided papers to use!  I actually ended up using just one piece, but both sides, as of course it coordinates perfectly!  I also pulled out my Viva Decor Pearl Pen to add 'bodies' to the butterflies, a centre to the flower in Lucy's hair and also to add teeny, tiny pearl buttons to her shirt!


I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 114 sketch - thanks for the super sketch Karen!
- Aly's Sunday Challenge 40 Baker's Twine
- Card Cupids Punch
- I Did it Creations 52 Recipe - 1 image, 2 DP, 3 embellies (ribbon, button, butterflies)
- Incy Wincy Designs #91 Buttons & Bows
- My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 2 (I hope the shine from my pearls is okay for this challenge , but if not scrub me off the list!)
- Fabulous Friday Challenge 22 Birds and/or Butterflies
