Sorry haven't posted recently but am working full time for a little while - very long hours.
Please be patient. Am desperately missing my 'craft room' but 'I will be back'! after the 26th.

Aren't butterflies gorgeous? I also just adore dragonflies. This card, which was part of a recent workshop, required masking the butterflies because I wanted the background stamp (En Francais) to look as though it was behind the images.
One of my most precious Stampin'Up! tools is the Stamp-a-ma-Jig which helps position images, either with masking or just setting the image in the exact position on a card. I couldn't do without it.
