Butterflies are fun

Well the race was really an exercise in careful driving in dry conditions.  Still it was a lovely day yesterday.

High summer and butterflies always go together and always bring a smile so this card is a celebration of butterflies.

Used Papermaina craft card with ledger lines as much because it reminds me of my early working days as anything.   Really must getting a job that is a very sad excuse for using the card LOL   Nestie die cuts and and a Serendipity stamp marked 2005 which is probably when I brought it.   Clear embossed and coloured with Promarkers.   The rub on's in the corners of the card are basic gray.   The other butterflies were stamped onto paper used to mop up Glimmer mists and then crumpled, the picture does not show them off they really shimmer.

There are a few challenges around that I am entering this in

  17. Hi Zoe
    I read this first line of your post and had to go back a bit to find out what the careful drive was!!!! Now I understand, you are an F1 fan too. We missed it this week, had to take DD to the other side of Leeds for a Drama rehersal, lots of gnashing of teeth, still it didn't sound half as exciting as the Candanian GP.
    Your butterflies are gorgeous, thanks so much for joining us at The Stampman this time.
