Pink Butterfly..

My second entry for this weeks Less is More challenge. Very similar in some ways to my first.

I made a panel by running a Cuttlebug Candy Cane EF through the Bug, then placing it on the card front using foam pads.
The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a circle nestie.
I made two butterflies with a Docrafts Whispers Butterfly stamp, using white ink and white EP on Pink vellum.I placed one butterfly on top of the other, then placed them both on the circle.
The circle is also placed using foam pads so it has quite a bit of depth.

Appologies for the photo, I had to go from room to room to get a decent piccy and the best I could do was on a stool in the bedroom hence the gap in the Background paper lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
