#24 Butterflies + R is for Ribbon.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

A special edition this time as the butterflies
have been going for 1yr.
So to celebrate 
there will be 3 Winners selected.

Each challenge will  be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies but with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
The twist is that my Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.
They will also be commenting on your entries. 

You may interpret in any way you like.
Just make sure that you have Butterfly/ies 
and the Theme showing somewhere on your project.

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.


Jane Willis
(winner of #21)

Jane has chosen the following letter for you.

#24 Butterfly/ies + R is for Ribbon.

Many thanks to Mrs A for inviting me to be Guest Designer this time. I chose the letter R which, Mrs A tells me, stands for Ribbons. I’m looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your take on it.
I live in Hampshire with my husband, and we have two grown up daughters and 3½ grandchildren, the older two of whom love crafting with me. Before we settled here, we spent several years living overseas in Hong Kong, Brunei and Germany.
If I say I’ve been crafting forever, it’s almost true – this year I will be 60 and I started crafting with my gran when I was only about 3 years old. By the time I was 7, our house was full of crocheted lace doileys.  Over the years I've dabbled in hand and machine knitting, crochet, embroidery and cross stitch, encaustic painting and glass painting, but I always come back to my real passion, papercrafting. I started my blog, Onions and Paper, three years ago in order to share my love of craft and cooking, and my passion has grown even stronger since, because of finding so many other blogs to read and take inspiration from. There’s always something new to learn (and buy!) when you’re a crafter!

Here is Jane's card.
A beautiful white on white  card 
with gorgeous embossing and intricate die cuts.
You will find full details on Jane's blog Here.

Thank you Jane  for being my Guest Designer
for #24.

Please take your Guest designer badge
from the side bar.


Here is my inspiration for you.

A cutaway Triangle shape Card.
Full details of how it was made can be found

(A) Blue selection

Please be sure to read all the rules on the tab

Happy crafting .
See you soon.

  10. Congratulations to your lovely winner and what a stunning card she has shared for some great inspiration. The soft pink with the apricot tone ribbon is an unexpected color combo, and is just so very pretty. Love the dies & placement of same and that gorgeous embossing. Love Mrs. A's cutaway card with the ribbon edge & the wooden flourish is most elegant with this butterfly flight. Hope I can find time to play along again this time. Big Hugs to both of you. TFS
