Green butterfly


Hi everyone, I've had this butterfly sitting on my desk for ages and finally got it onto a card today.
Life is pretty hectic at the moment so I'm enjoying a rare day in the craft room!

The challenge at Seize the Birthday has an optional twist of using acetate or vellum.
I've used vellum flourishes to soften the embossed background.


At Addicted to Stamps & More it's anything goes!

GRAB OUR BADGE!

Supplies:
Indigo Blu butterfly stamp; versafine ink & clear ep; Inktense pencils; Crafty Ann flourish die; vellum; Stampin Up embossing folder; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
