Butterfly Love

So continuing on with my butterflies, I promptly ordered myself the Papillon Potpourri stamp set when the new catalogue came out.  Couldn't resist.  It was full of lovely butterflies and had a punch to match.  Perfect.  Match made in heaven, really.

So smacks for me, I have only just used these to make some really pretty cards.  I've created these cards, as a step it up process. Starting with clean and simple:

Ooohhh, the picture quality is a bit second rate, but I've used a Whisper White card matt layered on top of a Whisper White card base.  I did go a bit fancy though and added a border of sewing/stitching.  With a sewing machine even!!  I've stamped and punched my butterflies and added them to my page and of course, they're birthday cards.  And need to say, Happy Birthday!

It makes me feel all botanical or should I say entomologist, when I lay my butterflies out this way!!

I used the colours of Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Pretty in Pink & Melon Mambo.  Cute pinks!!

I've then stepped up the layout, by tying some White bakers twine around the card.  Just adds a bit of something I think.

This time I've gone for shades of purple: Almost Amethyst, Wisteria Wonder, Purely Pomegranate & Rich Razzleberry.  Quite striking aren't they!

Tomorrow I will share even more stepped up versions of this card.  I love them :)
