Orange Butterfly


Hi, I thought I'd make some cards with some more of my hubbie's photos. He's taken pics of birds, flowers, bugs and other wildlife around our home!

I love the details on this butterfly, the wings look so velvety.

I'm entering the challenge at Simon Says Stamp where the theme this week is to Take a Picture. Create a project that is photograph, camera or film related.

I've used black and gold snippets in my layers to frame the butterfly, so I'm going to the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop

At Make it Monday, the theme is Anything Goes.

Thanks for visiting :)

  2. Oh.My.Goodness! This is inspired to use your DH's hobby to create something so beautiful with YOUR hobby. This is just the loveliest butterfly I've seen, and how awesome he could zoom in so closely on it. Love the way you've framed it up to emphasis the butterfly's own coloration. Great job to the BOTH of you! TFS
