Butterfly Card

I had a go at making a butterfly card from a template featured on Cardmaking Paradise

I went down the stamping 'route' and embossing 'route', but couldn't get a result I was happy with, so decided on using a piece of Chinese silk that really shines in sunlight.

I coloured the two pieces of card with ink and added a quote

Lovely to see you crafting again Lottie. The Chinese silk was a great route to take and your butterfly is beautiful. It's amazing the varied decorations of this template there have been on the Cardmaking Paradise website. I love the quote.
