Butterfly Bling.... and a weekend Away?

Afternoon ladies......
I have had another busy day , even though I was intending to chill!
Rushed into town at 9am as I realised that this was the only morning I had this week to get a few bits and bobs for the weekend. Then home to some hoovering and just time to photograph my cards before pick up from school..but the sun was very strong so I pulled the blind down in my craft room and now all the photos have a warm, greenish tinge! It doesn't matter on this one but the pink ones will have to be done again!

I think I said in my previous post that I have lots of these family labels to use up so I am matching up paper and card to them at the mo! I used some DCWV Luxury cardstock for the base and the layers. Sizzix Butterfly is cut from Gold glitter card and decorated with gold glitter glue and green jewells.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Allsorts...Bring out your Bling!
2. ABC Challenge...'G' is for Green!
3. Flutterby Wednesday challenge....Butterfly or fairy!
4. Play along Monday...Anything Xmas!
5. Sophisticats Challenge...Wings!

We have a busy weekend planned to celebrate our eldest daughters 11th birthday which is on the 19th November! We are leaving the country for a mini break away....If anyone wants to guess where we are going......I will give a little prize out to the correct answer! I might even buy it there!
We are off to London on Friday afternoon and we go to the Theatre Royal, Drury lane to see 'OLIVER' then stay in a Hotel and leave at 9am for our destination????
Hope a few people give it a go! Thanks for dropping by!
