PAPILLON

Another creation for Simon Says Stamp and Show A WORD.

I used Adirondack Color Wash denim for the background onto watercolour paper.
All my images have been embossed in white and machine stitching added to the edges, along with a trinket pin for the butterfly body and wing charms to the top of my card.
Lace and buttons complete my piece for this weeks challenge.

I also have two cards using Tim's Papillon set in this months edition of Making Cards magazine along with a couple of other cards using bird images, thanks Joanne. Unfortunately Blogger will not let me upload a picture of the magazine cover, yet another problem with Blogger this week Grrrrr!! However I have placed a link above.

Enjoy the remainder of the week. Tracy x x
