Timeless Tuesday: Bugs, Bees, Butterflies, Oh My!

Good morning Flourishes friends! It's Timeless Tuesday again and this week Maki, our hostess, is challenging us to: Use Bugs, Bees or Butterflies on our cards! I love all of them, but my favorite of the three, has got to be butterflies. They are just so soft and pretty!

I chose to focus fully on the butterfly only, and decorate around the butterfly, building out and around it.  It's meant to look like a butterfly under a glass frame.

I used a butterfly image from Flourishes "Butterflies and Blossoms" that I colored in with watercolors, then I cut it out and popped it up on popdots, placing it on some diecuts in the middle of my card. I created the framing with a multitude of Spellbinders dies that I cut from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, then I added some burnt orange rhinestone bling to finish the card.

Please visit the rest of the team to gather more Flourishes Timeless Tuesday inspirations!
