Butterflies

I really enjoyed last week's challenge over at Less is More having to make a DL card so I decided to keep the shape for this week which is to use a Touch of Red. Mandi & Chrissie keep us on our toes each week and it is exciting on a Saturday morning to see what challenge they have in store. Enough of me waffling - here is my card. A cream base card with a Marianne Creatable Butterfly in red with Anitas red gemstones trailing behind. The sentiment was done on the PC and cut with Labels 4 nesties. Pop over to the Simply Less is More Blog and join in the fun each week. I just love it. Thanks Mandi & Chrissie for great challenges.

A few people have been asking about the butterfly. It is a Marianne Creatable Butterfly Die and can be purchased at any stockists selling Marianne Creatable Dies.
