Butterflies


With Spring in the air the flowers are blooming and the beautiful butterflies are in the air... I was inspired to create this card wanting to use a butterfly in a simple way. I stamped the butterflies from the Want to Fly serendipity set onto pattern paper from Kaleidascope Boyz paper pack. I embossed them with Trancendence embossing powder which works perfectly with Palette inks. I cut out the butterfly images and curled their wings. I added a tiny bit of black scrappers floss for the antenna on the bigger butterfly. I used white ribbon from the lily anna collection. I pleated it loosely adhering it with adhesive along the way. I used the scor-pal to do a lattice pattern on the darker blue part of the base and dotted stickles where the lines intersect for a touch of sparkle. The sentiment is from a level A hostess set called Just for You- also stamped and embossed. For the final touch I sprinkled flower sequins from sassy sequins embellishments. What do you think? Have a great day!
