Before going off to Stampin' Up! Convention in Sydney, I made this card so I'd be able to share something new in my absence.  I think most of my regular blog visitors will probably be in Sydney too, but hopefully one or two of you are enjoying the posts I scheduled for the days I'm away! 

I really enjoyed making this card, using several products from the gorgeous Autumn-Winter Mini catalogue.  My Big Shot got a good work-out, cutting a couple of Top Note dies, and a label, and embossing the 'dotty' panel.  Great fun!  I've also used a few punches - the XL Two-Step Bird Punch provided the little branches, the Medium Jewelry Tag punch created the 3 tiny tags attached with a brad, and the Wide Oval punch (from the main Idea Book & Catalogue) was the perfect 'landing pad' for my butterfly.  The Wide Oval fits perfectly inside the Sizzlits label, doesn't it?  Love that look.
