Butterfly Wreath

Good afternoon my lovelies, hope you are all well.  Well it certainly has dropped a few degrees over the last couple of days, l am snuggled up with me fluffy bodywarmer on - until the next hot flush comes along lol - although l don't know what l am laughing at, they are very unpredictable and frustrating.  Toby is snuggled up on the settee too having his afternoon nap :)
So, the card today is using a stamp l bought last year from Chloe's called Butterfly Wreath, l stamped on white card and heat embossed with sparkly silver powder then did the same on a good quality thick vellum then coloured the butterflies on the reverse with copics, cut them out and stuck to the wreath - they are so sparkly l love them.  I think l will use this again to decorate a box sometime soon.
I am not sure what is going on with this photo but it is just pants.

Wow Susan, this is sooo pretty and what a fabulous stamp!! My colleague Kim is struggling with the "personal central heating" her son gave her a hand held battery operated fan for Christmas which she is always whipping out of her handbag at work!! xx

I know another 4 paws and wet nose, who loves snuggling up on the sofa, but not with me - only daddy (alan) will do, Luv Sam x

Stunning. Your silvery vellum butterflies really set off this aready pretty image. As usual, you're a marvel with the lovely papers, and I like that you raised your image panel too. Those butterflies really sparkled when I enlarged the picture. TFS & glad you can be cozy. It's a good time to stay inside cozy! Hugs
