Butterflies on a thread

Well I did my last early morning hockey duty
on Saturday, yeah. No more leaving the house while it's still dark on a weekend morning until next year, at least.

The fortnightly challenge at Butterfly Challenge is Butterfly and 'Y' for yarn. You may use yarn or some form of embroidery thread. Just up my ally!!!
and as fortune would have it the challenge at Clean and Simple on Sunday is "Stitching"!

So here is my card

I embossed a piece of paper with a brick pattern and adhered it to my card stock before adding my butterfly topper. Flat backed gems complete the layout.

Some small cards using half the original pattern.
