Craft is something that belongs to you in a way that nothing else does. You may share your passion with someone else, and provide inspiration for each other, but at it's very core it is a private joy that feeds your soul. It is there for you on the sunny days, the rainy afternoons and in the middle of the night when your worries are keeping you awake. At the same time it can be restful, meditative and exciting.

Card eight in the black and white challenge.  This Art Deco style butterfly is great fun to use and lends itself to lots of different styles.  I used cobalt blue metallic embossing powder and three medium sized gems in the bottom corner.  The antennae are always a little tricky if you decide to cut the image out.  After a few boo-boos I gave it away as a joke and decided to cut around the entire image leaving a few millimetres as a border.  Much easier and looks pretty good too.  I love this embossing powder =^..^=
