Christening Twins

Hello everyone!
It is the 15th of the months, so we're starting a new challenge over at Creatalicious.
I am so sorry for posting this challenge late. I completely forgot to finish this post yesterday  -  it's been Father's Day here in Germany and I've spent a lovely day with my Dad...

As spring is turning into summer over here, we can see more and more buttflies fluttering around here and that's what I want to see on your cards this month  -  butterflies (at least one!I). You can use a butterfly image, butterfly die-cuts or even a butterfly charm, as long as it is a butterfly it counts...

I've also got 2 very generous sponsors for this new challenge, which are

Lacey from www.stampandcreate.com.
She is offering this fabulous gift cert. for the winner.

Prize  -  £10 gift cert. for the online store
