One Layer Butterflies

A while ago I saw this amazing card by Maile Belles and knew I had to re-create it somehow. So I have used the beautiufl butterflies from the Cleary Besotted Stamps Butterfly Wishes set and stamped them along the side of a card base. I then cut the side with scissors following the line of the butterfly wings. The stamped greeting is part from the Butterfly Wishes set (the happy) and part from the Happy Everything set (the birthday). Jewels added to finish. I am entering this card in to this week's Less Is More challenge of wings (haven't played along on a while and couldn't resist using butterflies for wings even if it is predictable!).


Thanks so much for visiting today, sorry for the rubbish photo's. I am having really bad problems with the lighting in my craft room at the moment due to the darker days. Anyway, hope you have  a lovely Sunday. I have re-drawn my giveaway so please check below if you are a new winner. Thanks!
