Simple Butterflies

I have a couple of really simple fluttery butterfly cards to share today...inspired by the Less is More sketch challenge.


My starting point was the brightly coloured butterflies...not sure whether they were punched, or cut using a die, as they came from Lady LIM Mandi as part of a prize from a challenge she sponsored. I embossed the white card using my Craft Concepts 'Butterflies' folder...then added a scalloped border punched using my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch. The sentiment is a Whiff of Joy stamp.

Here's a better look:


And the pink one:
