Butterflies in Nature

Good afternoon, we just got back yesterday from Brookings Oregon and had a great time! I made this card above here, for Friday's potluck challenge hosted by Melanie over at Stamptv. we are to use a photo in our card and I used a photo my DH took on one of his kayaking trips at Trinity Lake in Ca. The stamp set I used is by Melanie Muenchinger "Inspiration Mosaic" from Gina K Designs. I was inspired by a card Lynn in St. Louis did using the same stamp. On my pc I removed most of the color from the photo, printed it out and stamped the image. Then I printed it out again in it's true color stamped the image again using my stamp-a-ma-jig. I cut out the sq.s and put them on my card. If you get a chance check out Lynn's card here. The photo kind of looks like I did a mirror image but it really is two different butterflies.
Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Thanks for pointing me to your blog, Geri! The photo is fabulous and I did think that you had done a double image of the butterfly -- it's wonderful to see the original photo of the two butterflies! Fabulous photo -- just as fabulous card!
