I have used dark indigo cardstock to make the base card and used my Crafts-Too Rectangle dies Stitch hole PCD98 to remove the centre leaving a border all round. The butterfly stamp is by Visible Image called rather appropriately 'Butterfly Inkcognito' and stamped using black ink onto pale blue cardstock. I then used the same die to cut a matching rectangle around the butterfly to fit back into the card front. The sentiment and the dots are black glitter stickers from my stash.
The second card which I took at the same time as the first one that came out wrong is perfect and was taken literally minutes apart . This really is a throw it together card. The blue strips where from the previous card. I had added them to a pile of strips of different colours that were still out on my desk and as I glanced at the pile an idea formed of using them up. The orange ones were on the top of the pile and looked so pleasing with the blue that I just sat and had a play with arranging them around on a white card blank. The butterflies were cut from the discarded centre of the previous card using a Memory Box die 'Cascadia Butterfly Trio'. Th sentiment is by Crafter's Companion Diesire and I cut it twice in snippets of the blue and orange card using orange on blue for the Best and blue on orange for the Wishes offsetting slightly to create the shadow.
Thankyou for all your well wishes for Sammy and Norm. As it has already taken him six yrs to get this far there is no need to rush out and buy a hat just yet and anyway guess who would get roped into making the Wedding Dress!!! I feel a headache coming on.
