German Lullaby

As you all know, I'm a big fan of Crafty Individuals. So I decided to create my own butterfly picture, similar to the ones on the paper pad for the 4x4 Friday theme of music. This is such a great theme for me, but the problem is knowing what NOT to use!!

Yesterday I ordered this Flourish set from Tanda stamps - 10/10 for service as they arrived this morning!

Thanks for your lovely comment Ros! That is a gorgeous butterfly :D I like Tanda's stamps too and have had my eye on those flourishes too - although I am over the moon with my Crafty Ind. stuff!
