Beautiful Butterfly.......

Morning everyone, hope you're weeks going well.  I'm packing up and heading down to Cornwall today to stay with my sis for a few days and to run a crafty workshop tomorrow at Scrapbook Magic, Million.  The sea is definitely calling and I can't wait to get there .............  it's always a hit and miss journey and can take anything from 4 1/2 hours to 9 (the longest one ever) so am hoping the M5 and A30 are kind to me lol! 

I was having a tidy up this week and found this gorgeous butterfly that came in my  Mothers Day flowers from Oliver.  To beautiful to throw away I decided to put it on a card.  I'd seen a great video by Sara Naumann on this card idea, so followed along, using my own choice of colours and ta da my card was made.  Here's her video if you fancy following along too. 
Fun isn't it.  Well that's all from me for now.   Have a great rest of your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to sharing some pics from our workshop with you shortly.
