Mothermark's teaparty challenge is to bring butterflies, and on Sunday when I was looking at the Featured Stamper's gallery I saw THIS CARD and thought it was the perfect chance for me to use on the crocheted butterflies I made and combine the two challenges!
My card has no stamping at all. I rubbed an ink pad of creamy caramel ink on to some white card stock and then embossed it. I then rubbed a piece of sandpaper over it to make the embossed pattern show up a bit more. The paper in the background is some I found on the internet, but I colored parts of it blue with a Copic marker. The butterfly was crocheted from white cotton crochet thread, but I soaked it in blending solution and then dropped some of the same blue ink on to it. While it was still wet I shaped it and it dried stiff and kept it's shape pretty well. To finish it off I added some ribbon, lace, and tied a butterfly charm on with some twine.
Another little project I did over the weekend was to make this little bunny box.

I added a little pink pom pom for the tail on the back.
It really is cute, and was easy to make. I gave it to my best friend for her granddaughter.
