Less Is More asks for a Monogram

Hi, the hardworking duo of the Less is More Challenge have asked for a Monogram...........couldn't make up my mind which of these two I liked the best, so am showing both and will let Chrissie and Mandi decide and of course you as well.............. The Monogram B is for Butterfly.


Not sure who made the stamp as it was in a bargain bin and have had it a long time.  The cards have been inked and clear embossed.  Have photographed these cards flat as have only laid the B and the Butterfly on top until I know what you think.

Am also entering these cards for The Stampman Challenge (see my sidebar) which is Butterflies and Dragonflies.  Have just been informed the Stamp is from The Stampman, thank you for the info, much appreciated.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and wishing you a great week.  Thanks for popping in and take care, Annette x

They are both beautiful Annette, but my favorite is the red butterfly, but then thats my fav colour.

Stunning cards that B is beautiful. My preference is the second one the butterfly and words appear the same ink leaves you feeling the butterfly is coming out of the words. ~Does that make sense? XOXO Zoe

They're both fabulous! If you want the B to be the focus then I'd probably go for the brown butterfly because the pink one tends to hog the limelight!
