Horses and Potatoes

Hello. Welcome.  Just a quick post cos we have guests tonight and I am suppose to be rustling up a dinner to delight.  Haven't even started the cake yet!!!   Naughty little crafter LOL.  Over at STAMPlorations the March CASEplorations playground is still open so I thought I'd have a play and cased Vicki's card.  

I started with a piece of yellow card and used Wild Honey distress straight off the pad.  Too many lines!!  But no, I like it.  Then I cut three Cheery Lynn Tiny Bubble Borders.  

I added the bubble border die cuts to two shades of green card.  Then I didn't like the contrast so I hit the whole lot with Cracked Pistachio distress.  I stamped the flower from STAMPlorations Bloom Sketches, fussy cut and watercoloured.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set stamped on whitish cotton.  I frayed the edges.  The butterfly is one of Cheery Lynn Mini Dimensional Butterflies.
