Glittery Butterfly

Sorry I've not posted for a few days.  The weather's been great - so I've taken up a permanent residence outside. :)  Crafting time has been drastically cut down by the SUNSHINE and flowers in my new garden.  HOORAY.  And we're growing loads of fruit and veggies too. So happy to spend time out there.
Anyway - it's new challenge time over at Caardvarks.  And another super sponsor.  Core'dinations make the best cardstock - I love it.  And for this challenge they sent us their new collection Ebony and Ivory.  The colours are delicious.  So the challenge at Caardvarks is to create a monochromatic card.  Here is mine.
I have a new addiction...thickers.  I am quite literally dreaming about them. I love them... and I want them all. :)  Here I've used THESE ones.  Delicious.  The butterfly is from THIS Hero Arts digikit.  Warning, lots more thicker cards to come this week :)
Click HERE to check out the challenge and good luck - there is an AWESOME prize up for grabs.

Very pretty, I have used the Black Magic card stock, it is great. Glad the UK has had some nice weather and you do have to "make the most of it".
