#30 Butterflies + J is for Jagged edges.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #29 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.

Kate P.
( Winner of #25)

Hi. I was delighted to be invited as Guest Designer for the Butterfly Challenge #30. I am married with five sons, seven grandchildren, five of them boys, and two great-grandsons. But since 2009, Chris and I have lived in Andalucia, S.Spain, and our family consists of three dogs and four cats, all rescued animals. I have been crafting in one way or another all my life, but since my retirement in 2007 it has become my main hobby. I started in papercraft with stamping and then was so excited to discover heat embossing! Now I love incorporating die cutting, and making my own cut-outs with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I mostly make cards for personal use, but also dabble in scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, lace-making, and also photography. I follow online tutorials to improve my skills and I love to learn about new materials and techniques on the internet, and usually try them at least once. So I am looking forward to seeing what techniques you have used for this challenge.

Kate has chosen the following letter for you.

#30 Butterfly/ies + J  is for Jagged edges.

(ie. torn papers,distressed edges using
a distressing tool/sissors).
You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
and you are free to use any embellishments
along with your Butterfly/s.
Here is Kate's card for you.

Kate has gone with torn edges around her image. 
I love the ribbon border that has been created
as a frame  and what gorgeous colours.
Please visit Kate here for full details.

Thank you Kate   for being my Guest Designer
for #30.

Please take your Guest Designer badge
from the side bar.

When I started stamping, tearing paper was all the rage, so I have a fondness for the technique. This was a fun trip down memory lane.
Lovely inspiration cards, and Kate, that cat is a beauty!
