#34 Butterflies + G is for Gems

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #33  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.

( Winner of #30)

Hi, my name is Veerle and I live in a rural part of Belgium. My native language is flemish so please forgive me for my poor english.
A friend of mine started up my blog back in 2013 and on august 29 I posted my very first blogpost. At that time i was making cards
for about 6 months. Ever since i was a child i was being busy with crafting but never into cardmaking. Not until 2013.
Immediately I was bitten by the bug and got myself a new addiction—cardmaking. In the beginning nothing much happened on my
blog, 2 posts in september, 4 posts in november etc etc until i discovered challenges, that was in july 2014 and from then everything
went fast. I won some challenges and my confidence grew a bit, i started to learn new techniques on the internet and the ball started
rolling. I am now a DT member on 3 blogs, unfortunately one is closing down on july first and i am so very proud to be the GDT for this
challenge here with Mrs. A who’s blog i really love. I am a very fortunate person because in september 2014 I was able to make
from my hobby my living I am working together with a craft store and I give a lot of classes, in fact I am almost 24/24h busy with cardmaking.
Thank you and greetings from Veerle x
