Butterfly card

Hi there friends, bit late with my 'Less is More' card this time, more about that later. Anyway here it is, they want us to 'Bring something back'. I used this very yellowing stamp set I bought years ago now.

I am ashamed to say I think I only used it once. I stamped it and watercoloured it and then covered it in pearls. I quite like these shades of pearls too, found in my stash from goodness knows where. I added a quick watercolour wash under my butterfly after cutting it out. I was going to add a sentiment too... then I thought...no...less is more after all ;)
 
My lovely FC teamie Cara is guesting over at 'LIM' this time too, do check out her gorgeous card!
 
A very big welcome to my latest follower too Mia, welcome aboard and thanks for choosing me to follow. xx

Ok come and have a peek at my card! .......so sorry I am late leaving you all comments again but I have been unwell yet again. I fear I may have gallbladder trouble, waiting for a scan now. At least I have lost a stone already as I can eat very little atm. so swings and roundabouts eh!

Of course enjoy your weekend/week whatever you have planned ;)

This is amazing, very elegant and beautiful.

Hope your gallbladder gets sorted soon, best thing I did was have it out after collapsing a few times in pain.
