Birthday Butterflies

Morning all.......

Please do not adjust you spectacles....yes it is me and I am POSTING!!!! Thanks for you patience and e mails of friendship and encouragement. Things have settled a little, but there is still a ways to go...a long way in fact, but at least there is a little light.

Now I created these cards a VERY long time ago and I got the inspiration from Leonie Schroder and her card here. I just love the whimsy and simplicity of it....so much so that I made a couple....or 4.

Here are my versions....


 Now as usual.....I have made small tweaks on each of them so no 2 are exactly alike. The differences range from a different vine colour, sentiment and rhinestones or pearls. I did particularly like the way the vellum made the butterfly "fly".


The other little piece of special was the wonderful embossing the vellum held.


Here are 3 of the 4 cards together. 1 had to make a quick exit so I was not late for a friend's birthday.


Again, thanks so much for your patience, support and friendship. I hope to schedule a couple more posts over the next few days. Last weekend (18-20th May) I also went to Craft Camp and I have MUCH to share from there too.

Thanks for popping by.
