I'm feeling blue - and green!

This is a close up of a stampbord piece i made for a thankyou card. It uses Prima Build a Frame Clear stamps and the extra layer of the butterfly is stamped onto Artylicious paper. The background is a piece of Basic Grey paper stamped with Basic Grey Flourish Edge stamps coloured in with Prisma pencils. I've added wire and adhesive pearls to the butterfly.

If I can get the next photo to upload, you can see the rest of the card and envelope - I say 'if' as it's taken me about 2 hours to work out how to upload this one!!!
Wow! I'm amzed - that only took one minute! Anyway here you can see that I've layered the main bit onto some text paper (7 Gypsies Napoli Collection) and then some dotty paper (MME). I wasn't going to use text paper, it just sort of happened. the MME paper is double sided so I turned up the corner as I liked the green!
i'm going to go and practise uploading photos now before I forget how to!

Welcome to the world of blogging, your stampbord piece is stunning. I'm taking Glenda's and Lynn's advice and subscribing, as a fan of Elusive Images Stamps and all things Artylicious it would be foolish not to.

lovely stuff Helen - liked your bits in Craft Stamper, so blog is very welcome. Can relate to your problems uploading - you've done a much better job than I have, and I thought I was getting better at it

Thankyou so much for the lovely comments! My blog is progressing - Glenda told me how to add links and although it's taken me all morning to work it out, it seems to be working! I am going a bit square eyed though!
Just got to organize my photos now!!
Or maybe I'll just go and do a bit of crafting instead!

Gorgeous card Helen. I love the envelope too (I always forget to decorate the envelope - this looks so beautiful and sets of the card perfectly). x Karen
