Penny Black Bashful Butterfly


I posted this card last week where I had done some ghosted images.

I had a little piece left over and didn't want to throw it away or put into the bottomless UFO box...

So I cut this daisy from some mixed media paper and watercolored it.

The daisy is a Penny Black die and the butterfly stamp, that you can barely see over it,
is also from Penny Black.

This card definitely makes me smile! :) So happy with the bright colours. Love the ghosted butterfly image that looks like it has just taken flight after resting on the beautiful daisy. xx
