A Spesch-ial release blog hop

Hi and welcome to Spesch Designer Stamps first ever blog hop.
You should have arrived from Maria.... however, if you haven't, please click here to go to the Spesch Stamps Blog and start the Hop from the start.

Today I am going to be showing you Kei with net.
I am completely in love with this entire range of stamps, she is soooo sweet and I love butterflies (and Tracey got these stamps the day after I ordered my beloved MS butterfly punch, how perfect it that!) I think her expression in this image is adorable :)
I had planned to make a gate fold card for this little cutie to sit on, but I decided that rather than trim off the long edge to make the flaps even I would leave it as it was, this way I have a large flap on the left that sits over top of a smaller one on the right (if you get what I mean). I have used my Cosmo Cricket earth love papers (I think that's what they were, I have been cutting into them for a while now and the name is long gone, lol!) on a kraft card base. I have distressed and glittered the edges of the DP in my main panel and used my MS doily punch on the small side. I have punched the butterflies out of the same stripey paper and smothered them in kindy glitz. Some lemon coloured lace to keep the card closed and a butterfly charm and that's everything!
Thank you for visiting me today on the Hop, your next visit is to Shana.... Don't forget to leave a message on all of our posts for the chance to win the entire collection.
Have fun!
