Butterfly

Morning everyone, quick post from me , with some good news and a quick make.  So which would you like 1st ????

Ok good news first, I have been asked to join a Design Team for a new challenge blog, Just For Fun ,  that is starting on the 1st August , I am looking forward to that, the design team will be split into two and the first half will show their creations at the start of the month, and then the second team will give you some more inspiration for the second half of the month , so keep a look out at the start of August.


Now onto my quick make for the day, a friend of mine is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and last week I went to her house for the new catalogue launch and a play with some new goodies, needless to say I just had to buy some as they are so gorgeous , but the stamp that really caught my eye was a large butterfly stamp , the detail on it is incredible. I'm waiting for mine to arrive so Ruth lent me hers for a day or so so I could have a play. The stamp itself is called Swallowtail. As it is so detailed I decided to go for a really simple project, and here it is.


I just stamped the butterfly onto some card and then placed it inside a simple white frame, I didn't want to add anything else as the butterfly stands out so well.
