Butterflies take flight

Literally!!!  These butterflies are on their way overseas, taking flight from Australia to Holland!

I needed a card with very few layers, minimal bulk and that would last the journey!!  Not wanting to use too much pink, but staying with the girly theme, I went for the colours of Pale Plum, Pink Pirouette & Orchid Opulence.  Very pretty!

I made quite a few of them, you know, production line style!  Although it still amazes me how long a simple handmade card can take.  But so worth the effort!

Now these were really difficult to photograph!!  Mainly because of the vellum butterflies I had used.

I've taken a few closer up shots, but I'm not sure these make the best shots either, but hopefully you'll see what I was trying to do!

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly & Baroque Motifs
Papers: Whisper White & Pale Plum CS, Vellum
Inks: Pink Pirouette, Pale Plum, Orchid Opulence and Whisper White Craft Ink
Other: Butterfly Punch, Sponge Daubers, Glue Dots & Kindy Glitz (non-SU)

My post-script for the day!!  I am waiting for my WH and my big boy Luke to get home ... any minute now...

They've been up at the snow (Luke was SO excited).  My two little ones were too little to go, so I stayed home and enjoyed the beautiful blue skies and Canberra winter warm sun.  Actually it was such a lovely warm wintery day that I was surprised to see so much snow on the local ranges.  Anyways, I'm excited too.  I finally get to make a scrap page with a snow theme.  Fingers crossed they're bringing home some great photos!!!
