Butterfly Magic

Happy New Year everyone!!  I hope you will all have a healthy and very happy 2013!

Thank you so much to those of you who left kind thoughts and words, they were very much appreciated.

Today I have a card made with the Spellbinders 'Butterfly Magic' die that was a Christmas present.  It's quite a large die and it does take a bit of fiddling about with, but it's worth it in the end as I think it makes such a lovely background.....
As you can see I used white on white throughout.  I added some glimmer dust to my butterfly, some tiny heart pearls for the body and some white satin ribbon, both from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I cut an extra butterfly to layer and give dimension, to which I added the glimmer dust.  My sentiment is from Flourishes - 'Inside & Out Just Because'  stamped onto a label from Spellbinders 'French Frills'

Sorry for the poor quality photo's, but it's been like night here for the past three days.  I think I may have to invest in a light box.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...

Thank You for stopping by

Absolutely gorgeous card Sasha! The white on white has the WOW factor:) I've not seen this die before but it's so pretty. It was a bit brighter here today and no rain!! It's just so dismal waking up to grey skies.

Where do I even begin with this stunning card. Love the white on white as well as the use of the knot on in the ribbon. The glittered butterfly may be what takes center stage. Thanks for fluttering with us.

Sasha this is really beautiful!

I think white on white cards are one of your trademarks now - you always make them look so elegant.

Another die I need to add to my wish list I think!

Annette said...

So pretty. I always so admire your white on white cards. I love this die but have so far resisted as I haven't played with the expandable lattice one I have yet. I also love the simple knot in the ribbon, as a lovely simple alternative to a bow. Been thinking of you x
