Acetate butterfly and tickets !

First things first, when I opened the mail tonight these 2 tickets fell out ! I don't remember entering a competition for them but I seem to have won ! Now unfortunately I won't be able to make use of these tickets so if there is any one who would like them I will give them away on a first come first served basis. The event is on the 26 - 28 February in Farnborough.

This is my card for the following challenges :

I started by inking a piece of white card with Adirondack Sandal ink then I stamped the paisley stamp from the Papermania set of stamps that I've not used before. I've had them for well over 12 months, I think they were a free gift with something, so thought I would give them their first outing. The border stamp and the flower stamp on the centre piece are also from the same set of stamps. I inked a piece of white card with Spiced Marmalade for the border pieces and with Dried Marigold for the centre, Distress inks. I've used Labels 6 to cut out the centre pieces.

The paper is My Minds eye and the butterfly, again from the same set of stamps, has been stamped onto acetate and stuck along the centre. The border punch is a Martha Stewart. The sentiment was stamped with Timber Brown Stazon and cut out with the same Labels die and I've sponged Dried Marigold around the edge before removing the die.

Well that's Monday over with, roll on Friday !

Thanks for looking
