Blue butterflies and lace

Another make from me today, this time a very quick and CAS card.

I took snippets of dark and light blue and used a Cuttlebug die (I think it was the one that came with my first machine) to cut two squares of each colour. With the scraps left over  I punched two tiny butterflies in each colour.

Then using a Kanban lace background stamp, I stamped lace in white on the dark blue squares and in blue on the light blue ones. Attached everything to a square card and finished with a ready made sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

I think the squares look as if they are lacy fabric cut with pinking shears!

I am sharing this with
Butterfly Challenge - S is for Stamping or Sapphire  and it had to be a birthday card to celebrate the challenge's 2nd birthday!

Thankyou for the virtual Birthday card. Mawh! I love your concept here. The squares do look like lace. The colours are lovey against one another and as you have used both of the required elemnts your card will be entered into the draw twice. Thankyou for fluttering by. Hugs Mrs A.

A lovely card and I agree the squares look like a lace fabric.

Oh, this is lovely. I thought these were scraps of fabric to begin with, that stamp is one I'm immediately envious of. And I always like symmetrical patterned cards but rarely make one.
It is good to see you over at the butterfly challenge.
