Butterfly and flower cards

I'm a little late with this post as I meant to do it last night, but time just ran away with me and I never got around to it, then this morning I have been very busy helping hubby dismantle my craft room - awwww! ready for a re-vamp - hooray! The room used to be my grandsons bedroom so at the moment I have one red wall with spaceships and astronauts all over it, but by the end of the week the red will be gone and the wall will be a lovely bright blue, although you won't see much of it as it will be covered with cupboards, a worktop and shelving. I'm also having the carpet taken up and a new floor laid so I will be able to whizz backwards and forwards in my chair, from my work desk to the worktop which will hold my die-cutting machines and guillotine.
Sooo looking forward to it all being finished, as I am temporarily working on a table in the living room, and it is not the same as having everything to hand.

Today I have a couple of birthday cards to show you, both made with papers from the First Love Ultimate kit from Paper Creator.

Papers - First Love Ultimate Kit - Paper Creator
Memory box - Darla and Vivienne Butterfly dies, Chesapeake scrollwork
Ribbon, pearls and gems - Meiflower
Silver Angel hair paper.

The top and bottom borders are the waste from the scalloped punch and the bow is a triple loop bow.
Papers - as above
X-cut palm punch large heart and circle
Couture Creations Tied together embossing folder
Ribbon and pearls - Meiflower

Your card is gorgeous. I love the butterfly and the papers and design are beautiful.
Please share your new room with us when you are finished. I am moving rooms a the minute and I am going to be very strict with what I move. Anything that I haven't used in the last year is being sold.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
