Butterfly Happiness

Good Morning, it's time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge! Are you having as much fun as I have been, with the past couple of challenges? The Flourishes Design Team really know how to stretch your imagination :)

This week Silke is challenging us to use "Butterflies" in our creations! I love, love butterflies and if you do too, this is a wonderful time to use your butterfly stamps! :)


I used butterflies from Flourishes "Clematis and Butterflies" set and a sentiment from their "Waterlily"stamp set. The butterflies are colored in with Tombows, cut out and popped up with popdots under them for "lift". I also folded their wings up so it would look like they are in flight. The "frame" was cut out with the largest Spellbinder "Lacy Square" die to achieve the scalloped opening. I used a Spellbinder "Circle" die to create the center, placed over a "Scalloped Circle" with a few "Fancy Tags" arranged under it, all placed on top of a new Spellbinders "Window Die"under everything. I lightly sponged "Worn Lipstick" Distress Ink around, for some extra color. The pearls are from Basic Grey, placed all around the card.


I have to say that this was a fun challenge and I loved every second of creating this card! I had an idea of placing some butterflies around in a circle, for a long time, and this challenge was perfect to try it out :) I painted the butterflies in before I found the papers that I wanted to use, so I was lucky these worked out! LOL! :) Thank you, Silke, for a fun challenge! :)
I'm off to see what the Flourishes DT members have made with butterflies this week, I can't wait! Good luck and have fun! I'll see you next Tuesday for another Flourishes TT challenge :)
