Beautiful butterflies

I love these gorgeous colours. Nearly all my new Mini catalogue samples so far have been made using this gorgeous combination. They will look lovely when displayed together – and it also makes it easier for me to work to a limited colour palette as I don’t have to keep getting new supplies out!

You can’t see it on the photo but the butterflies are mounted on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, which gives the card a subtle touch of glamour. The butterflies are created with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die using very small scraps of cardstock placed over the relevant butterfly. There really is no need to throw away any scraps ever again as I will always be able to make butterflies with them!
