Birthday Butterfly

Good morning Blog Friends - it is Saturday here and we are enjoying the weekend - I have a quick post for you today as I am still fine tuning for being part of the Art is You Australian Mixed Media Roadshow - how exciting is that - I still have to pinch myself!!

Butterflies never seem to be too far away from my cards, but I cannot help myself - and seriously - who does not love butterflies!!  This one is from a pack my daughter gave me - the last one too, they make it so easy to create something pretty. 

The butterfly has been layered onto the Labels Twenty Spellbinders® Nestabilities® which has been cut/embossed using the the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.  The Die has been used as a Stencil and sponged using  Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko Delicata in Golden Glitz.

The sentiment is from  Penny Black Inc. and has been adhered to the Fancy Tags Two Spellbinders® Shapeabilities®  The Nestabling is from Want2ScrapScrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on these cards.
