Things with wings


I love the colour combination of black, white and turquoise and I think it really worked well on this card. I used my new Penny Black stamp called Botanical Notes. I stamped the image twice so I could use the second image to layer up the butterfly and flowers with foam pads. I stamped another butterfly to use on the left of my card. I did minimal turquoise colouring on both butterflies to link them to the card layers and ribbon. To finish I added some beautiful turquoise dazzlers. I have a friend who would love this card so it will be put aside for her birthday.
This card is also my inspiration piece for the Penny Black and More June challenge which is butterflies. A nice easy challenge for you all and a whole month to enter.

I too like the colour combo Shirley, sometimes less really is more when it comes to colour and I think you got the balance spot on.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
