#79 Butterflies +L is for Layers and/or the colour Cream

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #78 are in the post below. They didn't publish earlier but they are there now so please make sure you check back as it could be you. Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
I'm very pleased to announce the set of themes and colours for the coming year. I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the mix will be that the themes and colours will not be the same letter for each challenge. I have also sorted out some new prizes too.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.

Alice P.
(Winner of #75)

I'm an italian teacher (of primary school).
I live with my six(!) kitties in a little country hill near the sea.
I started my blog in May 2014. I have always played with papers, glue and colours, but I have known cardmaking/crafting world only recently, when I bought my first Big Shot and some dies... Such a fabulous invention is it!
I like learning and try new things and always look at the amazing works of the so many talented crafter in Blogland.
I like to recycle, not only for an ecological and economical factor, but also because everything can be re-invented. When I was a kid, my Grandmother taught me to throw away the less possible, because everything can be looked with different eyes and used in different ways. She made me small boats with hulls of walnut-tree, and dolls with a knotting handkerchief... She preserved the papers of my Easter eggs, and then I made collage and decorated boxes with them. I enjoyed those papers!
So, now I hate wasting...I'm a compulsive hoarder :D
I love so much all the colours, the "girly style", animals, flowers and nature and all the sweet things make me happy!
Hope you like my little works and I can't wait to see yours!

Can't believe I'm first past the post - I was actually playing around with some cream card when I spotted the theme so quickly added a butterfly!!

So thrilled to see Alice is the Guest Designer this time round and adore her card and beautiful Roses, it's always a pleasure to visit her blog and makes me think hard and remember my Italian. Your card is also lovely Valery, the Butterflies look so pretty against the newsprint background.

I've made it for a flutter round the garden. Some of these creations are amazing and make mine look very humble. x

Congratulations to Alice for being your guest designer this week, and her card is fabulous as are all of her creations! I love your card too Mrs A - those butterflies are just stunning! I'm glad to be playing along again after such a long absence :)

Karenladd said...

Wow Alice...your card is just exquisite! I also share the tendency to hoard items that might come in handy for crafting...but the trick is to actually use them and not just store them, isn't it.

Well, I didn't expect to make it in time for this challenge but then I saw it was open for a month, so I got there after all. I love the colours and the butterflies on the inspiration cards. Now I am going to look at other folks creations too. Kate x
