Friday Freebie 049

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is back to pink so all you pink lovers out there can have the chance to win this on

I have used the Butterfly Background for this one in a lovely shade of pink  ... but sadly this is a die that has now been retired from Spellbinders and will be hard to get hold of

The card itself is simply A4 cut in half and then hinged at the top and the just layers added all with foam pads to give it depth

It has pearls surrounding the frame and a dazzler in the centre of the bow and I have added pearls hearts to each of the butterflies.

It has been lined inside and it is about 6x8"

So would you like to win this one ?? If you do all you have to do is leave me a comment at the bottom of the page.

A name will be drawn in the morning and the  winner announced in the days blog post.

I will post the card to your wherever you are but please pop back to check if you have won.  

So today is my Birthday and I am giving away some lovely goodies. The chance for you to win the  Birthday "Give Away"  is open until the 8th March

If you would like these items then join the group of followers, leave me a comment and add your name and email to the list.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  28. Happy Birthday Christina! I hope your special day is filled with abundant blessings. I adore this card! It has so much dimension. I love that you embossed one layer with dots. It adds to the texture without overwhelming the card and the butterfly die is fabulous. Oh! Did I mention that PINK is my very favorite color?!? My Granddaughter calls my craft room the "The Pink Room" so this stunning card would look lovely displayed in my room. I have been recovering from a broken pelvis and broken shoulder so I can't craft right now but I've been enjoying your website and the cards you post everyday. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards with us.

  78. Happy Birthday Christina. Hope you are having a terrific day and being spoilt rotten by your family.
    Like so many others here, I have never seen that butterfly die. You should get Spellbinders to supply you with "about to be retired" dies to sell when you show us and create this interest.

  89. Oooo, I love this card. I love it so much that I found a site that still has the butterflies background and just ordered it. For anyone else who lives in the states and may want to order it, I found it at http://www.123stitch.com/item/Spellbinders-Shapeabilities-Dies-Butterflies/NEST-S5-221. I don't work for them or have any connection, just trying to help out fellow crafters. I hope you don't mind, Christina.
    I would love to win your card, but if I don't I'm going to do my best to try to recreate it. You are such an inspiration and are making me buy waaay too many Spellbinders. lol
