LOC Butterflies

This card is made from the Layers of Color new release set of stanos called Butterfly Collector - how beautiful are they and so easy to work with - they make this card minimum effort with meximum result - and don't we all love that from time to time!!!  They have been coloured with chalks and attached only on their bodies to the embossed DP.  Their wings stand up on their own which adds a lot to the card!

I wanted to use different colours to showcase these images and chose the turquoise DP sponging the distressed edges with orange, which highlights the colours in the wings and flowers.  I have also added nail bling to the wings - they are the perfect size.

The flowers are layered and attached with buttons and brads.

Those wings sit so prettily above the DP

This card qualifies for the Die Cuts R Us Challenge - Create a Girly Project
