A Stitch In Time at The Butterfly Challenge

I was sorting through some stash that had been hidden away and came across my Spring Card templates and stencils so thought I'd have a go with them for the Butterfly Challenge - A Stitch In Time . It's ages since I've used brass stencils and it was so nice going back to an old technique. The brass stencils are great as they have a different pattern in each corner but it does mean that you can't use them in your machine if you want the same corners so it was out with the light box. The thread is very sparkly as it's metallic and I've used a Wink Of Stalla clear brush on the butterfly but neither show their beauty in the picture
