White on White

This is week 14 on Less is More and this week it is White on White. Funnily enough I did that last week too on one of the cards I submitted. This week I used a huge papermania punch to punch out the border and for the butterfly, I punched out two shapes and added two pearls on wire for the antennae. The sentiment is a cuttlebug sentiment, also die cut in the same card. To finish off I added a few pearls to the border and the butterfly!

This is lovely Val, I have this punch too, but it hasn't seen the light of day for a while. Super job!
Maybe crafters who don't have die-cutting machines can take inspiration from this one... Just punches... brilliant!
Thanks so much.

Clever idea to punch and then mount onto white card. At first I thought you had debossed it. the effect is stunning and I love all the little pearls and the antenna.
