…when they are wide open in flight

Sharing a card featuring the gorgeous Tiny Townie Blanche the Butterfly stamp from Stamping Bella.

The photo isnt the best, I forgot to take one before I gave the card and so had to snap one over cake with my phone!

The layout of my card comes from the sketch over at TGIF.  I did swap out the rectangular elements for more organic rounded ones, using the stamped image for the large centre one and adding in two rounded rows of flowers for the smaller elements.

I’ve played along with the bingo board at Back to Basics and Beyond using the centre column.  I’ve coloured my image in shades of blue, stamped in some flowers and added pearls for the flower centres.

While I’ve not got a real butterfly I do have a butterfly girl so I’m also linking my card up at Stamps & Fun = Creativity.
