You Mean The World To Me

Hello friends,
I think we can safely be assured that butterflies are making a return to my blog!
Today's card is the faithful black and white which I always think is striking.
For the edge I used Classic Petal Edgeabilities® with Classic Decorative Inserts Three.
I layered Labels Twenty Five with some stamping and inking.
The all important butterfly was created from Wings of Hope - I cut three and layered them,
(was tempted to cut four but held back!)
To finish, the addition of a black gem flourish and tiny bit of ribbon.
The paper is GCD Studios - Paris Nights Collection.
I am back tomorrow with some photos of the egg hunt which will no doubt feature Bella and Boys!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine,
I love this card today, it really stylish and elegant.
I received my new Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine today and I must say I love your two page spread on Quick Makes, they are adorable. I was trying to decide which one I would say I liked the most, but can't they are all truly lovely.
Hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday.
Hugs Linda

Ha! Unlike you, I've seen just about all the butterflies I can stand, but this one really knocked my socks off. I just mentally substitute the butterflies I see everywhere with something else, like flying pigs -- tee hee!! Tres chic!
