The Finale!

Hi every one.  Wow, its Saturday!  Hope you all had a fabulous week.

The girls and I are off out to the cinema this morning.  Shannon and a friend are going to see Divergent, and Emily and I are going to watch Mr Peabody and Sherman :-)

I finally have the last three cards, in the set of sixteen that I have made.  The first four posts for the series, can be found here, here, here, and here :-)

I was lucky enough to win a gift voucher to Top Dog Dies, off of Yvonne at Do More With Less - thank you so much Yvonne.

These butterflies were one of the sets that I was able to purchase, it is a Cheery Lynn Designs, Small Exotic Butterflies #2 w/Angel Wings set.

Just have to share a close up of each of the butterflies.

The papers for the butterflies are from a My Minds Eye 6" by 6" stack called Collectable "Memorable".

The other papers are from a Recollections 12" by 12" stack called Cherry Blossoms.  Will you look at this butterfly, even looks as if he has eyes, just luck with the paper :-)

All the edges of all the layers, including the butterflies, have been inked up with CTMH Sorbet ink.

Don't you just love the detail of these butterflies!  They cut out perfectly with my Cuttlebug, all the little tiny pieces just fell out.

For the insides of the cards, I just used papers as the front and then stamped some little tiny butterflies to finish them off.

There you have it, that is the last in this set of cards.  Now I have to come up with a box for 16 cards and envelopes.  Have a couple of ideas in my head, so hope to share that with you soon.

Thanks for all the fabulous comments you all leave me - I really do appreciate your visits so much.

I am entering these cards in the following challenges.
