Black and White

Welcome to my new follower.  Please let me know who you are so I can put a link to your blog. 

I was at a craft fair recently looking for a particular die, when I spotted this Memory Box 'Sylvan Corner' butterfly die, which just shouted out at me 'buy me! buy me!'. So home it came with me.
I'm back in my comfort zone of CAS today , after making yesterday's shabby chic card. I used a metal shim and the intricate die cut beautifully.  In the top left hand corner there are two solid butterflies and the wings lift up to make them 3D, although you can't see them very well in the photo of my card.  You can see how the die cuts here..... 
I added three little punched butterflies for added detail.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  9. I can understand why you listened, when the die demanded that you buy it. It is fabulous. I really like the black on the white. Striking.
