Butterfly Snippets

I haven't done too well with getting more Valentine's cards made so I decided the least I could do was use up some of these VD themed snippets I have:
I puttered around with them and came up with this simple card.  I had a hard time getting a good shot of this card.  Either the glitter heart or the butterfly's shadow was insisting on being a problem so I finally took it outside and held it into the sun.
I really wanted you to see that the butterfly had a brad for a head.  That way I could enter him into Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge where you were to use a butterfly (of course) and a brad. I know that isn't a very exciting use of a brad, but it is there.
After making the first card I thought that design would make a nice sympathy card so I made this second card.  The papers I used were all snippets so I'm going to trot over to the Snippet Playground for the second week in a row.  Probably the world is going to end or something.

The Fine Print: Designer papers from my stash, butterfly die by PoppyStamps "Theo," love greeting by DeNami and sympathy greeting by Endless Creations. Amount of dent put into my Valentine stash: not a bit.

How is the new dust pan and brush doing! Do hope you not just sweeping the fluff under the carpet. Lol. 2 gorgeously CAS cards. Love the brad for his head which cos I'm having to work on my Ipad I can blow up to gigantic proportions. You might just want to hang on to some of those snippets. Just saying like. Thankyou for fluttering by #22. Hugs Mrs A.

They're both such pretty cards, and I love the snippets of dsp on each one! I see the brad-head, I see it! Good job working that brad in for the challenge!

I like the use of the brad on the butterfly, and that's a lovely butterfly die. Both cards are pretty, and the sympathy card seems especially serene (I tend to use butterflies on sympathy cards too.)

Love these Judy! Now that I've picked myself up and recovered from the shock - lovely to see you again :)

Super idea to use the brad for the butterfly's head - not many of us would have thought of doing that neat trick!

Fabulous way to use up patterned paper and butterfly dies too.

Now THAT is a WOYWW desk shot!

I like both of the cards, even if you did stick a pin in the poor butterflies' heads.

Hi Judy, two great snippet cards - I like the simple and clean design and the lovely butterflies - the brads for heads is a very good idea. Elizabeth xx
