Flashback Friday 23.0

The prompt for this month at Flashback Friday is to post the first card you made with Butterflies.

This card is the second card I made way back in December 2002. I had been to a knitting and sewing show at the NEC in Birmingham in November and had been inspired by a demo to 'have a go' at cardmaking thinking it would be cheaper to make my own rather than buying shop bought foolish. We all know it's not cheaper but way more fun J
The aperture card blank was from my Cross Stitch days and I sandwiched the gold crepe paper in between as the background (I still have that roll in my stash somewhere!) I added a scrap of card and a mulberry paper rose with a gold bow.

In those days peel offs were the only way to add a sentiment and I love butterflies so of course had to buy lots of them. 2 are stuck straight down and the other 2 have dimensional wings flapping from sticking 3 identical symetrical butterflies together, the fisrt technique I had picked up from the demo I had watched.

I'm glad to say my photography skills have got better!! I took photos right from the very start of my cardmaking and how glad am I as I can share this little gem with you J

If you are brave enough to re-post your very 1st Butterfly card hop on over to Flashback Friday and link your card up, it can't be worse than mine!

Oh It's pretty!! Our firsts may not be the best of the best, but they sure remind us of how we first began as crafters :-) Thank you for playing along with us at Flashback Friday :-)
