Butterfly Cards

I was in Primark yesterday lunchtime and saw this necklace.
Necklace
The cogs started whirling …….. those butterflies would look cracking on a card I thought …….
Butterfly cards
And this is the result …….

The necklace cost £2.50 and had 8 butterflies on –  a bargain, when you think what the equivalent in a craft shop would be!

The card blank is made using  an ivory linen card (from The Papermill Shop). The background paper is from the Passport range from Making Memories and the scalloped square is made using a Nestabilities die.

I prefer the card with the plain centre square, but am dead chuffed with the both results.

I have this necklace... and one the same but with leaves instead of butterflies. I stopped wearing them when Vic Reeves, dressed as a woman, wore one in an advert for bingo. *lol*
So now I know what to do with them :)
