Decoupaged Butterfly

Hello there, hope you are all good today.  I've not long returned from a session at the gym called Yogalates.  I now make myself go to this twice a week because I really do need to shift my butt and get fit lol.

Anyhow, I was inspired to make this card because of some papers that were free in the centre of a crafting magazine, details below.  I thought they were gorgeous and I don't really like to use these papers because they can be a little flimsy and difficult to work with, but I couldn't resist them.  You can download the papers from the website but it can get a little expensive printing out papers, with the cost of the ink.  I tend to like to stick to printing digi stamps out with our printer.  I actually did get to make 2 cards with the papers.  The other card will be on my blog sometime this week.
