Butterfly for the Bakery

I love Thursdays! I get to share my creations with you here, and also at my other home, Pink Paper Bakery! Today I'm serving up a butterfly card.

I've been a huge fan of butterflies ever since I was a kid. I didn't like to read a whole lot, but I remember checking out books about butterflies, from the school library. When the Swallowtail background stamp first came out, I thought, 'that is way too big to put on a card!'. Oh, boy was I wrong! Guess who now owns this stamp? ☺

One of the first cards I fell in love with, using this stamp, was made by Mary Brown. Mary can pretty much make me love everything! Here is her card that I CASEd.

Here is my version. I scaled it down a little to use as a workshop card. The ladies at the workshop loved it, and had a wonderful time! Thanks, Mary, for your inspiration!
