Butterflies.


If you are looking for my Lily Pad Blog Hop post please go here!!



























I have a box of butterflies cut out and ready for use on cards, I often sit in the evening cutting them out while watching the television.  Yesterday while they were spread across my desk I had an idea for this card.  The top three butterflies are pop dotted on the wings for more dimension.

This card is for the current Hero Arts Challenge for  "Shaped Cards",  The challenge over at "A Blog Named Hero" as I used my favourite  Antiques Engravings set and also the Simon Says challenge which is using your favourite tool (definately my Sizzix Big Shot!!!).

Those butterflies are gorgeous! I especially love that middle one. I'm guessing you stamped it on pattern paper in just the place.

I love butterflies, Sally, and this card is just so precious! I just bought that Spellbinders die, too! Love the shape of it.
