Soooo, I'm that side out at the moment, which means not only do I have insomnia, but I am also feeling really creative.  I'm running the risk of falling asleep at my desk as tiredness hits mid-afternoon, rather than about now (it's 11.30pm UK time), as it should.  Obviously, I can't go off and have a nap at work, so you would think that I would be exhausted by the time I get home, but nope!  Wide awake at nearly midnight and no sign of settling down to sleep any time soon.  On the plus side, the only think I can really do in the middle of the night without disturbing the husband too much is to lock myself away in my craft room and create.  I find that I usually am more creative when I have big things on my mind, which I do at the moment.

Anyway, this is the first of tonight's creations:

I apologise for the lack of/quality of photos - I think I have broken the camera (can't get it to focus properly) and have resorted to my phone camera now, which is a bit hit and miss on quality.  

Anyway, this card is made using an LOTV mini masterpiece, which are now only available in their ebay outlet.

The papers are all from the bonnets and bowties paper pad, and I stitched the layers together with some purple thread.  I didn't do this very straight, as you will be able to see, but I would like to think that it adds to the charm of the card.

I used the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for the layout.

I added two LOTV sentiment tags and die-cut a butterfly from a scrap of coordinating paper.  I added some liquid pearls to the body of the butterfly, and finally added two pearls in the top right-hand corner of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
