#28 Butterflies + M is for Music notes.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #27 are in the post below

Each challenge will  be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies but with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
The twist is that my Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.
They will also be commenting on your entries. 

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.

(a joint Winner of #24)

Kath has chosen the following letter for you.

#28 Butterfly/ies + M is for Music Notes..

You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
(ie. Music paper /stamp or Treble Clef Symbol etc)
 just so long as  I can see Music notes 
plus your butterfly's on your project.

When Mrs A invited me to be one of her Guest Designers on the Butterfly Challenge I was over the moon, so chose the letter ‘M’!  Mrs A says ‘M is for music notes’ and I have used the fabulous Indigoblu ‘Sheet Music’ stamp on my card.

I've always enjoyed crafting and started knitting and sewing clothes for my dolls when I was young.  Since then I've also done crewel and cross stitch embroidery, woodwork, flower arranging, cake decorating and sugarcraft, and tried a few other things along the way!

A few years ago my husband gave me a gift voucher for my birthday so I could attend a local cardmaking class – he always jokes that it’s been the most expensive birthday present he has ever given me!  I started my blog Handmade by Kath to get feedback on projects for my Certificate 
in Papercrafts and now use it for entering blog challenges.  My favourite style is CAS, although I enjoy trying different styles and techniques to get out of my comfort zone.

I’m looking forward to visiting everyone’s blogs to see how you have interpreted ‘M for music notes’.

Here is Kath's card for you.

I love the delicate shading on here
and how Kath has perfectly matched up the layer 
with the music notes over the top of the backing paper.

Please pop over to Kath's blog 
to see how this was achieved. 
I'm very intrigued myself.
I love that butterfly too which I do not have !

Thank you Kath  for being my Guest Designer
for #28.

Please take your Guest Designer badge
from the side bar.

Bet that shocked you Mrs A! I just had to rush in ASAP lest someone else thought to use the same stamp :)

Gorgeous work by you and Kath - and of course a great theme once again!

What gorgeous inspiration from you and Kath, Mrs. A! I thought I'd been quick off the mark - absolutely amazed to see that Di's beaten me to it!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I think music notes and butterflies were meant to go together. Such a great combination! Cathy's card is quite elegant as is your fancy fold one!

Kimbo said...

I loved this challenge even if I did have some problems with my card. Great inspiration from Kath and yourself too. Can you please delete my link no 10 for me. I can´t do it myself. No 11 is the correct one. Thanks. Kate x
