Good morning crafty friends....

Ivory and black for this week's give-away

The card measures 5"x7" with smaller panels of black card then ivory

The striplet die and butterfly dies are both by Creative Expressions, as are the black gems and glitter jewels

The sentiment is from a magazine freebie set

I didn't use the striplet's outer cutting die on the card and once  die cut I added some double adhesive sheet to the back of it then sprinkled glitter jewels over the area.  It looks to have a grey colour but in the flesh it's very glittery

I scored vertical lines on the right side and added the tiny flat back gems 

The sentiment was embossed and two butterflies adhered in place 

For the inside of the card I die cut the outer shape of a butterfly on both pieces of black card stock then stamped a flurry of butterflies onto the envelope

If I were sending this card I would either stamp a verse using white embossing powder or use a gold or silver paint pen to write a personal message, or, finally, stamp a verse onto ivory paper/card and adhere it to the black card, leaving the butterfly shapes visible

As always if you would like to give this card a new home please comment on this   post by 6pm Friday.  We use Random.Name Picker to choose a winner therefore it doesn't matter if you have won previously

We also ship internationally at our own expense

NB  Tomorrow is the first day of a new challenge at MAWTT for Team B so my blog post will be shown at 9am to correspond with the challenge 

Until then....
