Less is More - Week 16

The theme over at the Less is more challenge blog for this week is - Butterfly / Butterflies...

Today is my Birthday and my friend gave me nestabilities lables 20 for one of my pressies... they are really pretty so I had to use them on the card for this week's challenge.
Here is my card for this week.... you can see I used the long side of the die to cut the top of the card creating a pretty edge. My cuttlebug had no problem cutting through the two layers of card together. I did this by slipping the cutting edge at the top of the card and the rest of the die behind the folded card... I taped it in position with low tack tape to keep it in place.
The butterfly stamp is one that I have had for years - a gift from another friend. ... and of course the flowers are from Joanna Sheens pressed flower stamps...I used promarker pens to colour them in... I started with the full rose, masking that to stamp the second... I masked that one too.. and carried on with masking as I went to build up to look of roses in a basket. The basket is a piece of beautiful textured wallpaper.
.. Well that's it for now, I might be temped to do a few more cards for this challenge as I love butterflies... well, who wouldn't.. Lol
