This week, Mary selected Black, silver and white for the color challenge. Very elegant colors! Now, the dessert is celebration. You may not think I did a celebration, but I think I did :) The butterfly represents change and new beginnings. We are celebrating that we will be having our second grandchild in September. We just found out! So our little Madi will be a big sister!
I stamped the LaBlanche (flowers) with Versafine. The butterflies were stamped, fussy cut and there is just a bit of black stickles on each of them.
Thank you to all the design team members and everyone for all the inspiration throughout the year. Wishing for a healthy and happy 2014 for all!!!

Lovely, Kathleen.........your LaBlanche image gives a lovely toile feeling in the black and white. The butterflies and their significance add a very pretty touch. A celebration indeed. A very Happy New Year to you.

This makes me think a little of - mind goes blank here, help - toile de Jouy designs, in the classic black and white with a soft feel. And with Stickles on them, I bet those butterflies are even more gorgeous in real life.
What a wonderful way to start the New Year with the promise of a new life!
