Butterfly congratulations...

Hiya,

I thought I'd pop in and share a card I made using the Walzingmouse sketch challenge as my starting point. I dug out some older papers that I got a while ago because they had gorgeous butterflies on them (what more of a reason to you need lol??) but I hadn't used much of it because I didn't want hide the butterflies by putting other stuff on top -- so I set to work cutting them out!


I played around with a sketch a bit and flipped it on its side so I could fit in this Labels 18 shape. I stamped it onto some coordating paper from the same pack and cut with nesties. The flower is from a pack that my sister brought me back from the US when she was the on holiday recently - they are so pretty I've been hoarding them for the right card! I added some black lace as an extra touch. Pretty simple really, but I really like the combination of colours and butterflies...

Thannks for stopping by - I really do appreciate all your sweet comments!
