A Right Royal Celebration.....


.......over at the Less Is More Challenge Blog this week.  With celebrations all over  the country for  the Queens Diamond Jubilee the girls asked for a Red White and Blue CAS card.  

Here's mine, I chose a butterfly......a graceful creature which is fitting I think....



 Again, using the positive and negative die cutting technique.
I've added some diamond stickles to the red butterfly. (not sure my photo shows them!)
I thought the Queen wore a beautiful outfit on the Thames with sparkling crystals...didn't you?

Thanks for calling past.......til next time.....
