Pink and White Butterflies.....

The Challenge over at Penny Black this week is to use a Penny Black stamp as the background.
I found a little butterfly stamp that I have never used and created this background with it.
It was so easy and I love the results!!
May have to do it more often.
In fact I showed hubby who sais 'hooray!  Does that mean you don't have to buy any more patterned papers?'  Now, how do I let him down gently??? lol...
The elephant stamp is Embrace by Penny Black.
The seam binding and doily are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The butterfly embellishment is from a seller on ebay!







I am also entering this into the fab Forever Friends Challenge Blog which needs pastel colours and an animal!!
