ABC Challenge

It's turning into a bit of a flutterby week as I've gone wings again for this weeks ABC challenge which is "V for Vellum".

My butterfly which is Creative Expression HH269F is stamped onto vellum twice then glittered ........ I often make up batches of butterflies and explain in more detail here how I make them up for anyone who is interested.

My DP here is My Minds Eye, the scrolls were cut from bazzil using Cricut home decor and the two little 'dots' are the bits that came out of the scrolls when I lifted them from the mat, I thought they sort of added a bit more interest and carried the colour.

Hi Brenda, This is beautiful. I love the butterfly - I followed your link to see how you make them, thank you. I will be buying some butterfly stamps in the not too distant future and will have a go at following your instructions.
Have a good day.

Love the shape of this card Brenda, popped over and had a read about your butterlies which are adorable. I'm wondering if you can use the thicker glitter as i have pots of it waiting to be used and loads of vellum, another little find while cleaning lol. Do you think it would work ok, really fancy making some of these butterflies and maybe a few glittered flowers too.

Beautiful butterfly! My Mama LOVE butterflies. She has butterfly pins on her den curtains. (She's quite a decorator.)

I've never used Vellum. It's so fragile it scares me. :) Your creation is just beautiful!
