Butterflies are………………..

Hi all

I'm sorry I haven't been around for a long time. Unfortunately I have had quite alot going on in my personal life since February and just haven't been crafting until the past few weeks. 

For my first post I would like to share with you all a card and some Jewellery I made for my sister for her birthday today. I have scheduled this post as I didn't want her to see the before I had given them to her. By now she should have opened them.

Here's the card I made.

I am really pleased with this card. I don't use many distressing ink techniques and loved the effect I managed to create.

Tim Holtz Distress ink - Dusty Concord
Versafine - Onxy Black
Emboss Clear ink
Wow Embossing Powder - Black Glint Regular

Now for the Jewellery I have made for her.
