All white sympathy...

Hello everyone :o)

I nearly didn't bother showing this one, as I just couldn't get a photo that showed the details... white cards are so hard to photograph.  The light box was no good, so I ended up setting up near the window in the craft room, which worked better... maybe I'll try this set up for my other cards, it'd be easier than getting the light box out every time anyway!

I've got some old Bazill Basics templates that come in very handy whenever I need a butterfly trail.  They're just sheets with holes in the shape of different swirls and patterns... I pencil a dot through each hole, remove the template, then add 'pearls' over the top with a pearl pen.

Items Used
Butterfly die - possibly x-cut (magazine freebie I think)
Sentiment - Sweet Little Sentiments - Clearly Besotted
(stamped in Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle)
Viva Pearl pen in Ice White
Corner rounder punch
Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap (for the edges)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Everybody Art - white

Off for a little catch up with your blogs, as I don't seem to have found much blogging time so far this week.  Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
