Purple & Pink for Alice

Dutch Dare's challenge this week is one close to my heart, they are asking for cards to be created for Post Pals. Post Pals is something I already support, I send cards to Alice, who currently undergoing chemotherapy. Her favourite colours are pink and purple, so that's what I've used for my card.

I've used the gorgeous sketch from Sketch & Stash Challenge this week and I've used butterflies on my card, which is this week's challenge for A Spoonful of Sugar . I love Danni's butterfly challenges and this week she gave us the very straightforward challenge of using a challenge sketch and including butterflies (or fairies) so I've covered that one too :).

This is, of course, a stashbusting card as it's for Sketch & Stash :). I began with something new: the lovely butterfly stamp from last month's Graphicus Guild themeplate, which I hadn't used yet. It's stamped onto Glimmer Misted paper, the butterfly stamped again and coloured with Koh-i-Noor pencils then with Glossy Accents on top. The sentiment stamp is part of this month's Graphicus Guild themeplate, again I've not used it before.

The pink pearlescent card came from a box of paper that I filled at one of the first craft shows I ever went to, this is neglected stash, as are the two DPs, which are both from my Graphicus Guild membership papers. The pink background is obescured by the images, but it is a lovely large-scale flower print, and of course the butterflies had to go onto this card :). Butterflies diecut with a punch that I've had for a while and just begun using, ribbons and flower from stash.

Post Pals is a lovely organisation, please join in and send cards if you can :).


  1. How very pretty! I just love it! Thanks for playing along with my challenge!

  2. This is lovely! And what's with the Photobucket background on your blog? Was it intentional...or perhaps something with MY computer?

  3. Goodness Anne this is gorgeous. Just popped right out at me and took my breath away. I'm better now. What happened to your blog? Are you changing it?

  4. This is just beautiful Anne. I love your glimmer misting, the colours are gorgeous.


  5. This is such a pretty card.
    I love the colours, beautifull paers and gorgeous butterflies.
    Alice will love it.
    Thanks for joining the DDCC this week.

  6. Wow Anne, you kicked butt with the challenges with these last couple of cards. I love this card and I love the Post Pals. The butterfly is gorgeous and I am sure your little pal will love it. Hugs, Leslie
