Made It Monday #3 - Saturday's Leftovers

Hello everyone.  Did you have a good weekend?

We are in the grips of bitter cold weather at the moment.  Yesterday it was -40c (-40f) and today is just a little bit warmer at -30c (-22f) those are the temperatures with the windchills, but it is enough to say, OK I am staying in the warm today!

I didn't do a Sneak Peek Sunday, because, well, I didn't have anything to show you a sneak of LOL!

Of course, what better place to be when it is that cold outside, in a nice warm house and I was in the craft room bright and early this morning.

I was going to tidy up a bit, but as crafters go we always seem to get side tracked.  I decided I could use up some of the leftovers from Saturday's card (check it out HERE).  That's the good thing about having a die cuttin session, lots of bits left.

So, this is what I made this morning.  I think I over did the leaves on this one, just couldn't seem to stop adding them :-)

This time I also cut a partial butterfly, using the angel wing, in the orange papers, to show the paper underneath.

For the inside, the same papers and a little message panel, and a flower to finish off.

Distressed the edges and inked the layers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The little sentiment stamp is from CTMH Garden Occasions.

I am hoping to be back again tomorrow, with something a little new to me ;-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
