Rhubarb and Butterflies


This is very much a card made from scraps - all in the cause of tidying my desk... 

I chose four pieces of paper that coordinated and adhered them to copy paper, sponged the edges with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, then adhered that to the card base (that also had the edges sponged with the same ink), and  stamped the quote about the butterfly,  again using Rhubarb Stalk ink.

The butterflies were stickers from my stash that have hovered around my desk for longer than I care to admit. 

That, and the greeting stamped in the same ink, were both magazine freebies.  

I finished the inside with a butterfly from the same set of freebies in the same ink, and added a tab of washi tape and called the card finished.

Hello dear Maxine,

What a marvel you have produced from scraps and so well co-ordinated at that. Just loving the sentiment and feel we humans need to imbibe it.

I love rhubarb to eat so now you have me hunting for the ink LOL.
This is a lovely card and I do like the butterflies, especially the top one, it is a gorgeous shape. Again you have made the inside interesting too - just enough stamping on it.
Blessings, Neet xx
