Just to say

I've been trying out my new cosmic shimmer drawing paints on this butterfly. They are so easy to use, I easily kept within the outlines of this free image from Create with TLC. It originally had a background of four squares, but I decided to cut those away. The background card is a piece of SU whisper white card put through the bug embossing folder. To keep it simple I made my own tag and used Paula Pascale stamps on it.
I'd like to enter it into:-
Allsorts Challenge - all white with a coloured image
Flutterby Wednesday-open but must have wings
Crafty calendar - wings

Very striking Linby.

I love blue and green together (although my Gran always said "blue and green should never be seen")and think it's a prefect combination and the butterfly stands out against the white embossing beautifully.

By conicidnece and just to prove my theory, I bought a gorgeous blue and green top in Monsoon Saturday - I was sort of drawn to it - as you are when you go out with the intention of buying no new clothes and only what's on your list. That proves another theory of mine, lists are a waste of time !

Enough of my babble, I came to thank you for joining us at Allsorts this week and wish you luck in the draw.

Hi Linby,

This is so simple and yet so VERY effective. The embossing adds so much to that divine butterfly. The ribbon looks subtle and elegant as well.
