Patchwork Butterfly

Two days after my Brother's birthday is one of my SIL's (Pippa's Mum!!) For her I wanted to keep things monochrome but with wow and I was inspired by this card I saw on SCS. This is my version of Sheryl Dickinson's card....



This went together so very easily. I added a couple of my own tweaks from the original with the sentiment and the textured butterfly.




I put the butterfly on dimensionals too, so it looked as if it was floating through the air.


Monochrome has such impact and wow....doesn't it??
