Anyway this week over at Kaboodle Doodle challenge they have this photo as the inspiration for their challenge.
This is my card
I'm normally a fan of ralatively quick to make cards, but this one believe it or not took a while and its because I decided to make some of my own patchwork paper. I took 6 different papers from a My Mind's Eye collection that I have, and punched out enough 1" squares to cover a blank piece of paper. I then die cut the shape I wanted out of this patchwork paper. I wanted extra texture so I ran it through my Cuttlebug using a dotty embossing folder. I then ran the front of the card through the Cuttlebug with the same embossing folder. I took another sheet of paper from the same collection and layered this on to the card front leaving a border. I rounded the corners and then faux stitched all the way round it. Lastly I punched 3 butterflies from the same paper collection and mounted them together and added some pearls to give extra dimension. Finally I added the "Thinking of you" die cut sentiment to finish it off.

Still loving this butterfly punch from Tonic!
