Flutterby Butterfly

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

A busy day here getting some video's recorded and making some tags for a swap I am in.

Today I am sharing another make from the workshop I attended with Maria Simms in July.

We used the wonderful large butterfly from Clarity Stamp which was embossed onto black card and coloured with Viva Decor Inka Gold.

We also used Inka Gold to decorate the frame. I decided to cut out the butterfly and have placed a shaving foam background and added the birthday sentiment.


A really quick and simple card to create but looks quite elegant!
