Just for fun!!

Very exciting!
Today is the launch of the Just for Fun Challenge Blog!

I was honoured to be invited to join the very talented group of crafters who make up the Just for Fun DT!!
 I hope I can add a little something in my own small way!

The first challenge is 'Anything Goes'.

If you have read any of my blogs you will know that I am 'between craft rooms'!
My husband and I recently left Abu Dhabi and we are back in the UK awaiting our next 'expat posting'.

Anyway I decided that my 'Anything Goes' card was going to feature a beautiful butterfly embellishment that I picked up in the Naif Street Souq in Dubai - a very colourful area of Dubai with small shops overflowing with inexpensive ribbons and bows, buttons and beads, laces and gems...

Because I didn't want to detract from the lovely gold,beige and brown butterfly,
 the rest of the card is very minimalist.
I started with a pre-folded white card and just added horizontal and vertical banners in gold and brown papers. The butterfly and a few sparkly floral beads completed the picture.

And here it is...

Happy Crafting!
