Today is the final day of Mrs Beez's personal challenge to to show support, and raise awareness of, the charity Amy and Friends and the work they do to support children suffering from Cockayne Syndrome. Amy and Friends adopted the butterfly to represent those whose lives have been cut short by this terrible illness and therefore Mrs Beez has been placing a butterfly on all of for projects for the past month.
I really admire what Lisette - aka Mrs Beez, has been doing to raise awareness of this charity and it meant so much to me when she asked me to be a guest on her blog. I want to thank her for giving me this fabulous opportunity.
As these are my last butterfly cards for a while I thought it appropriate that they, once again, should feature the outstanding Stampin' Up Swallowtail Butterfly stamp.
I watched a You Tube clip by Brandy's Cards, which showed me how to make this style of card. As you can see, it has dimension and looks as if it is elegantly peeling away from the page.
Regular visitors will know that I take out my own form of insurance policy when I stamp images and always make two impressions (at least) and, if nothing goes wrong, I end up with two very similar cards. I managed not to mess things up this time, so I made one card in SU Midnight Muse and the other in Cherry Cobbler.
