Butterflies

Hi all,
Just popping in to show you a quick stamped card 
using this lovely little Wedding Butterfly set available Here


I simply printed the sentiment and frame onto ivory linen card, matted onto a black layer
then masked off the edges with post it notes before stamping the various butterflies in onyx black versafine
I stamped an additional butterfly onto scrap card , cut out and raised it up on foam pads.
and added a couple of gems to finish.

The idea in my head worked as I was imagining ivory and black = classy.
Not sure it worked in reality as I think it looks a little somber for a birthday card and maybe more suitable for sympathy instead.
I think I will attempt it in a bright colour :) 
Oh well they can't all be masterpieces can they?

Thanks for stopping by today
