Floral Butterfly!

This card started out for a shaped card challenge...this is a butterfly template that is from looooonnnnngggg ago....D.O.T.S. days! When I got about half done I remembered I recently picked up the Beautiful Butterfly Sizzix Die! I'll have to play with this idea again with that shape!

I also have been cutting out these beautiful flowers from Fred, She Said Designs....and somehow they ended up on my butterfly card!! These beauties come in a collection of *14* colors! These are the Polka-Dotty Flowers, and I love them! I didn't do a thing but cut them out and score and fold each petal by pinching each petal together, and the same for the leaves. Pop them up on some foam for a bit more dimension!

The smaller glittered butterfly is the opening *card.* The antenna are stuck into foam tape that is between the *card* and the larger shaped panel. Thanks for stopping by and takin a peek!

Wow Michelle, this is truly beautiful, love how you've made the card, and using the flowers as the centre of the butterfly was an ingenious idea. And the red and green look fabulous against the pink and white polka dot paper. Glad to be working with you as a fellow teamie on FSS.
