Butterfly blue

This is my design card for today's Sweet pea stampers 'just because' challenge - please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team - and we would love to see you joining in our challenge.

I used Karen Middleton's Sweet Pea Stamps 'butterfly blue' rubber stamp (also available as a digi), coloured with spectrum noir, mounted on to a piece of matching card before mounting on to the background paper from a pad called' summer textures'. The flowers with brad are Panduro hobby, the sentiment circle from Craftwork Cards and the felt buttons from Poundland.

I'm showing this card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge for August - please click on the link and have a look if you haven't yet found this challenge blog - and, if you love using patterned paper, please join in.
