Golden butterfly


This whole malarky of selling things on Ebay is so overrated. I finally admitted I will probably never be able to fit into some of my dresses and decided I might as well try to find them a new home. But after all the work of photographing, writing up ads, and folding everything up into envelopes and adding addresses, re-issuing payments with different postage fees etc. I recon I didn't even make minimum pay for my time. Oh well, hopefully someone else will love those dresses so at least they ended up somewhere useful instead of a landfill.

As I have spent most of my day folding up dresses and stuffing them into envelopes, the crafting today was a quick clean and simple card. I used the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration. I was also inspired by the butterfly theme over at House of Cards and the gold theme over at CAS on Sunday. I heat embossed the lovely Swallowtail stamp and I also stamped it in Versamark over the front and back of the card. I love the way Versarmark looks on kraft card. I'm also linking up at Clear It Out where Anything goes this week. 

Card: kraft card, mirri card
Stamps: Stampin' Up Swallowtail
