LIM week 18 - Card No 2

Another Black and White Card. This time it is Marianne Creatable Die of the Butterfly. I cut the first one out and luckily it did not cut very well so I left it whole and the black one I cut completely. Took several attempts as I think the card was a bit thick. I have only stuck it down the middle body bit on the white one and the black one is stuck with tiny black foam pads. Forgotten I have them and they were just what I was looking for. Finished off with a few white gems. Apparently Black and White butterflies are called Marble Whites. We had a lot here one year and my son Paul took loads of pictures, he converted one photo in a software programme (he does that sort of thing for a job along with designing web sites) and my daughter-in-law Claire cross stitched it for me for a Xmas present. Its very effective.
