One Stop Crafts Challenge Pink & Brown

We went to watch Hampshire play cricket in a 20/20 match last night (which they won), and decided to sit in the sunny side of the ground. Sadly that's where the rowdies were and some chaps behind us decided to make Vuvuzelas out of their 6/4 run cards, which they rolled up into trumpet shapes and blew like crazy!. Crikey... what a racket they made.
Eventually they must have felt sorry for us and moved to pastures new! Thank Goodness. I bet they have sore throats this morning!
This card for my friend's mum, is also for the challenge at One Stop Crafts today, do come and join in the fun. The theme is Pink and Brown... lovely combo!
I began this card by using a couple of shades of pink Cats Eye ink to shade the background, then overprinted this in Chocolate chip ink with a fabulous Penny Black stamp. It's called Inclinations!
I die cut the butterfly in a piece of white card, using a Cuttlebug die and then cut the square around it with a Nestie, to use as the masking frame.
I had forgotten that things don't stick to Cats Eye ink very easily, so that's why I used the pearl brads not just to look pretty, but to keep the layers together. The paper is a digi download, I only wish I could remember where it came from!
I made the sentiment in MS Word on the computer, again mounted on Nesties.
Enjoy the lovely weather this weekend!
