Papers and die-cut are Tilda
I've added some stitching, lace, eyelets, and a flower (cheapy from The Range). I am also going to add some sort of stamped sentiment on the 'post card' bit but haven't decided yet which one.

Patterned papers are from a fill-a-box place
Vellum quote is by Anna Griffin
Flower was a bargain from The Range, pack of twelve for £1, it's white but I've gently inked the edges with a pale beige ink.

The butterfly and sentiment strip/ tag are by K & Company.
I embossed some pink card in my Cuttlebug and then roughly swiped a Versamark pad over, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and then brushed some off in places before heating. I wanted random parts of gold not an all-over coverage.

Papers were free with a recent magazine and are Webster's Pages.
Sentiment is by Waltzingmouse
I've hand-stitched, first time ever! Usually I do faux stitching but decided today to actually use needle and thread (I'm useless at sewing, can you tell?)

Stamp is Waltzingmouse, paper is by Papermania.
The butterfly embellishment is actually a nail file/ emery board!
I bought a pack of four for £1.99 in Cancer Research UK (charity shop but these are new not donated, they have cake-stands and drawer liners etc as well, all their own brand) and thought they would be nice to use on cards as a small gift.
I've attached it with foam pads so should be easy to remove and will also put a note inside the card so that the recipient knows what it is.
I think the butterflies are quite sweet for 50p each and nice that the money is going to a good cause. Looking at the photo of the card I'm wondering now whether to add a row of gems down the centre of the butterfly?
