Press pause and enjoy today

Press pause and enjoy today
Is what my sentiment says. It's from Joy! crafts 6410/0010 and I stamped it with Versafine black ink.
I thought it would go well together with my die cut butterfly also from Joy! crafts 6003/0023.

For my card for the Less is More challenge this weeks we're supposed to use wire.
I used purple metal wire that I coiled around a pencil and I attached a silver pearl.
I also used two white little flowers on wires as if the butterfly is hovering above them.
To make the circle I diecut a circle from scrappaper and inked it with Distress inks and mini blending tools ( picked raspberry, carved pumpkin and mustard seed)
I raised the butterfly with foamtape and tucked the wires behind it.

 wiated to get my  Big shot back as I had lent it to someone, my idea for the card was slightly different but then this popped into my head and I liked it even more...;-)


I had to use the flash for the photos as it's almost midnight, I hope you can still pick up the white flowers

  3. What a superb sentiment you have used Maaike. Makes you feel calmer just reading it. That's a fantastic pop of rainbow colour behind the butterfly and a great use of wire too,
