Butterfly's and Cards Galore

Good evening,
I know I have not been very good with my posts lately but I have just started work at this fantastic school and that has kept me busy, and will do until I settle in and know exactly what I am doing.  So bare with me for a little bit longer.
Today I made a present for a friend and because I love how it has turned out, I have another two on the go.  On page 120 of the Idea Book & Catalogue is a creation of butterflies and cards that I have been wanting to make for ages and now I finally have.....
 This so lovely in person, I'm not as happy with it in this picture!
 My first butterfly with blushing bride and dot to dot embossing.
 Three by three cards with brights dsp (unfortunately I don't have the dsp for the in-colours!)
 My lucky limeade perfect polka dots butterfly, love this one.
 The card using cord threaded through the fold in the card.
 Blue butterfly, lol
 I decided to make a plainer card to use for a male.
 This is real red as I have run out of poppy parade, but the colour blended in nicely.  All the top butterfly's are embossed with elegant lines, stripes, houndstooth and vintage wallpaper
 Card to match, with sentiment in the same colour (hasn't shown up in the photo unfortunately).
 Peach parfait butterfly with dazzling diamond centre.
 My favourite card, so I am showing you twice, from different angles, lol.

The end result.  I also added a bag of peanut brittle because I made a small batch this morning.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely evening/day.........
