Quick card

I made this last Friday in-between getting all the cases unpacked and washing done. I just had to have a quick crafty ‘fix’ lol.
Background paper The Engraver pack by Prima given a little sponging with distress paints.
Tag inked and stamped with DPaint.
Flower a rose brad painted with DPs and watercolour paper petals around it.
The butterfly is a memory box die inked and splattered.
Some washi tape and Tim Holtz sentiment.
Quite happy with it for a simple card.
This was the view from one of our bedroom windows on Sunday night, very Turnerish don’t you think? Can you see the rainbow even though we didn’t get any rain? And this was facing East too, not west which to me made it even more dramatic.

I hope you are enjoying your day, thanks for stopping by.

I don't know how it is possible, but I saw I just missed some of your fab creations.
This one is so pretty. I pinned it (hope you agree) and I think it will give me some inspiration.
In a week we are leaving for California...do you have some suggestions?
Hugs, Margreet

Oh for heavens sake Brenda! If this is just a quick crafty fix then you put me to shame - this would take me all day! (and still wouldn't look anywhere as fabulous). Love the flower especially!

Fabulous card Brenda!!! What a great way of using up those bits of paper we all have lying around.... I love how you put this together, the tag and butterfly make for fabulous vocal points and the papers are layered together to perfection.

That Turner sky is amazing, wow, even the Turnerish mistyness is there somehow, - oh and welcome back of course!!

Oh, lovely - the central panel is great with the papers, and that fab distressed tag, and the tiny butterflies are a delight. Love the washi strips in the background too... and I think I may "need" that Memory Box butterfly!
