Monochrome Butterflies~

Hi Girls~

By the time you read this post, my friend Angie and I will be on the road to a "Retreat" in Lancashire. We are having Wed & Thu (two full days) of crafting heaven.....Oh we cannot wait.
I will tell you all about what we get up to at a later date.
Even we don't know exactly what it entails, but we are staying overnight, so we get two 9am-6pm days "Playing"!!
What could be better, total bliss!!

I made this card to say thank you to Angie for organising our trip.
I have not made and easel card for ages, not really my usual style, but these tiny 5x5 scalloped cards just look so cute made this way, well I think so anyway!

I have used some Papermania "Bookprint" paper in Monochrome. I then stamped some Inkylicious butterflies on the same paper, added some 3d foam to them, then added a few Hobby House pearls to the bodies before adding then to the card.
The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Set and the ribbon is from my local market stall.
I added another 3d butterfly to the base part of the card, this was perfect to use as the stopper for the easel section.

Sorry about the dreadful photo, the light was shocking!
