Soft Wings in Black and White

I recently won a random draw at

I was so excited because I love butterflies and
this one is a beauty.

I'm fluttering over to the playground with this, since I got to 
use up a few snippets for this gate fold card.


This Week's Addicted to Stamps has a photo inspiration.



The shades of black, gray and white inspired my card.

And I'm excited to announce that my
was the winner over there on August 22nd.


Thank you ladies.
I'm honored.

There is so much detail in that butterfly that it looks wonderful in black. And of course there is one of your fabulously embossed backgrounds.

Congratulations on your well-deserved win, Bonnie! I think this card is another winner. I love it!! Hugs, Darnell

Have been seeing this SU butterfly used a lot lately, in grays or blacks, tones of both. This one on your card is one of the prettiest I've seen yet. This stamp is so large, I often find it awkward to use properly & well. You certainly showcased it so well, very dramatic, and of course with that mesh EF, it's just wonderful. TFS

Darnell J Knauss said...

And I was right, Bonnie! It IS another winner! I just saw that you were showcased at ATSM!! Yippie!! Hugs, Darnell
