Allsorts challenge week 451 - Butterflies

The challenge this week has been chosen by Wendy and she would like see Butterflies on your creations.

Our sponsor this week is Tattered Lace .
Here is the prize on offer.

I have only one Butterfly stamp and it is a very old one and I think it is from Hero Arts as is the Flower Box stamp - also very old.
Stamped the images and then stamped again onto DP then again for the butterfly to lift the inner part of the wings.
Papers Bloom and Grow.
Apologies for the poor quality of the photo.

Hope that you have managed to keep warm this past week.

Disclaimer: I will not be held responsible for any medical conditions suffered by Mrs A after seeing this image on my card.

Thanks for popping by and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Stamp may be vintage, but you certainly created such a pretty & shining butterfly. Love the dimension and the glimmer on the underwings. The corner posies are so pretty too, and I like the way you've framed the focal image. The foliage on the mat dp looks great with the theme of your card, and the mats add nice pops of additional color! You stay warm too! TFS & Hugs

Fabulous paper piecing and I love how you did the double layer butterfly on this gorgeous card Kath... the sparkle dots really finish the butterfly off well... then you've framed it perfectly.

I'm afraid I'm not really a butterfly lover in real life - I have a bit of a phobia of them and moths too.. but I always admire the paper type!
