Anyone who knows me will confirm that I am into butterflies big time. When I first started cardmaking it was rare for a card to leave my crafy room without featuring a butterfly or dragonfly somewhere within the design.

Thankfully my scope has widened, but I still have a love of butterfiles in my crafting and from time to time spend a day making just butterflies so that I have a stash to draw from as needed.

The card I am sharing with you today is a design I have used many times with just the odd amendment here and there. Paper is some of the gorgeous new Laundry Line designs from My Minds Eye available from and is generously glittered, although I'm afraid that does not pick up well on my image (my photography skills leave much to be desired - who would beleive one of my son's is a professional photographer - perhaps he'll give me lessons ?).

The scrolls are cut on the Cricut using Home Decor and the circles on the C/B with nesties. The butterfly stamp -Creative Expression HH269F - is one of my favourites as the clear image lends itself to glittering. I have finished the card with three little dots which are a new find called Candy Dots which have a matt finish and a nice change from gems. They come in a variety of colours including brown, navy and a nice bright pink.
