A Butterfly in a Snowstorm?


Hi everyone, a strange title for a post but I think I might have got carried away with my frantage on this card!  I did not intend to get it everywhere but I kept blowing it away and burning my fingers when I was trying to heat it from below and got in a real muddle!  I'm hoping it will add to the vintage look but I fear more that it looks like my pretty butterflies are in a snowstorm!  Never mind I will try harder with the less is more look when I use frantage next time lol!

Anyway this is my DT card for Crafty Little Fairies and our challenge for you this week is 'Vintage/Shabby Chic'.  I have used one of my new stamps that I brought on Sunday at the Craft Fair from the Little Claire stand.  Their stand always looks so lovely with the cards on display.  

There is a wonderful prize for this week's winner of a £10 voucher from the Ribbon Girl


so I hope you will come along and join in our challenge this week.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges........

Thanks for stopping by.
