Beautiful Butterflies

I have changed my background and although I like the pale pink
 it doesn't go with my ROSE.
Some of you have mentioned my rose, a photo I am very proud of.
Several years ago when I bought my first digital camera i went out into the garden
one January in the early morning and  spotted it. rushed in got the camera and took the photo.
The day turned out to be a very hot one and by evening
that rose was opened out with petals falling.
The bud beside it had just shrivelled up but I have a lasting reminder.

Today I am using a lovely new embossing folder from Darice.
It embosses so clearly and just exactly the right size.
this is the inside of the card so you can see just how perfect it is.

On the outside I have chalked around the dotted circles
and added some of my lovely butterflies.
Have set Tilda looking out of a circular window
watching the display.
Haven't used this pinky mauve for a long time I wonder why.
am entering this in:

Totally Gorjuss - Use something new

Thank you for dropping in you and your lovely comments are most welcome.

  16. Hi Margaret, this is beautiful, the embossing folder is really lovely and I love how you have Tilda watching on.
    I always thought the lovely rose was an image you'd picked out from somewhere, not one of your own. As you say you have a lasting memory, what a fab photo!
    Hope you are keeping well.
