best friends

I'm sticking with my vintagey shabby chic look for a bit longer. This time I have added a bit of sparkle 'cos the cupcake challenge this week is 'shabby sparkle'.

I made a card blank from papermania kraft card. The papers are My Minds Eye, I think they may have been called 'bloom and grow' but I no longer have the cover sheet. The butterflies are die cut and layered up with gems. I also made an effort and did some machine stitching. Pretty pleased with this one!

OK then, off now for a nosey round the blogs but I will be back tomorrow with more shabbyness!
