Two in One - Daring Cardmakers

First it's Rachel's turn for the 'Little Extra'...

"Now this weeks mid week dare is inspired by Rachel and is called 'Folded' ! This is not folds in the card blank itself, but rather folds ON the card- whether it be some kind of paper folding technique or folded embellishments or even just a folded over message of some type."
and for Friday, it's Jo's turn...

"I seem to like butterflies at the mo. This week therefore I would like you to put some butterflies on cards. Stitched, felt, shiny, bright, plain, paper pieced, stamped, drawn... you get the idea :) any theme of card but it must have a butterfly somewhere on the card!"
Seeing as I am a little later than usual I incorporated both dares into one card. The butterfly is folded (only a bit of folding, I know!), then hand cut. The image is the girl with no name created by Louise Brigden http://craftsbylouly.blogspot.com coloured with Whispers pens. Papers are all freebies from SC&P magazine - never used any freebies as much as these! I made a bouquet from paper flowers tied with embroidery floss.
