New Home

A CAS card today with a few challenges in mind.  After making a several cards in red, white and blue this week, the colour of the UK flag, I thought I'd have a change and make a card in red and white, the colours of the English flag.

The Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is 'Butterflies + K is for Key and/or the colour Vermillion' (bright red or scarlet). I thought a key would be perfect for a New Home card.  The embossing folder is a Sizzix one which I've had for a long time, but I think it might be discontinued now.  I added a flat, punched flower to extend the pattern in the embossed design, added a little punched butterfly and corner rounded the corners of the embossed card.  I used a little white Nuvo Crystal Drops for the butterfly's body.  The key is a die cut from the set of Spellbinders 'Lace Heart' dies, cut in scarlet pearlised card. I used snippets of the same card for the butterfly and the centre of the flower.  The front of the card blank was covered in matching scarlet, pearlised paper.

I am joining in the following challenges:
