I love butterflies :-)

I don't know what it is ... butterfly stamps and die cuts are just so pretty.  Here's a card I made recently which just makes me smile because a) it has butterflies and b) it was so, so easy to put together.

It's actually quite similar to cards I've made previously (see here and here, or just have a look at everything on this blog that I've made using this die), but if it ain't broke, why fix it?

Unfortunately the colours on this look a little duller than they are in real life - the weather wasn't cooperating and I just couldn't get the lighting I wanted.  The large butterfly is cut from Melon Mambo, a bright dark pink which has come out more of a red colour here.

As for the circle on the right, it kind of looks like it's supposed to be the sun, but it's really just because that corner needed something and this is what looked right.

I just realised what's missing.  Sparkles.  I might add some tomorrow - a rhinestone, perhaps, or a spritz of Shimmer Paint. I can't believe I forgot to add sparkles!

Your butterfly cards are so pretty! I also think butterflies are beautiful and would add them on everything if I could! :)
