Sweet, Simple Swallowtail SSC98

Sometimes it is good to get 'back to basics' and this week Sunday Stamps challenge has reminded me of that. They want a one'layer card with the image and sentiment toward the top right, so no die cut butterfly, or sentiment on a label, let's just keep it sweet and simple.

It's been a long time since Swallowtail saw ink and I've kept it fairly simple in black with a sentiment from Painted Petals with the only colour provided by splodges from Gorgeous Grunge.

Inside I've stamped two of the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri. One of my customers ordered that stamp set last week, which reminded me of all the different sweet butterfly images that I have.

Now, it's time for me to pop out into the Autumn sunshine to plant some bulbs I bought last week.


**Very happy for this card to be picked by Angel at Sunday Stamps, as a Top Pick. (11 April,2015)

    1. Thanks for your sweet comments Monika, so glad you love Swallowtail. I think your local Stampin' Up! Demonstrator should be able to order you the stamp even cheaper than my prices. Australia has the second most expensive prices of all the market places.

  3. I love your clean, simple and one layer card. You mastered it perfectly! Thanks for joining us at Sunday Stamps! Hugs.
