Butterfly and Flora

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  It is Monday and I have a card to share with you using the one of the new Spellbinders Great ,Big, Wonderful New World by Sharyn Sowell.  I have used the Shapeabilities Butterfly and Flora Etched Dies - such a pretty die that does all of the work for you.

'Great, Big, Wonderful World Collection by Sharyn Sowell reflects everyday moments and nature through her amazing hand cut silhouette motifs. With a bit of whimsy mixed in, these designs just make you smile! - Spellbinders

The Die has been run through the Platinum Die Cutting Machine twice. The first die cut has been adhered to slightly smaller Authentique Paper using double sided tape.   The butterfly from the second die has been fussy cut/hand cit using scissors and layered onto the first die.   The image, including the layered butterfly has been coloured using Imagine Memento Inks
 and the edges sponged using Teal Zeal ink and a sponge dauber.

The Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company Chipboard sentiment banner has been adhered to the lower portion of the card front.  Next the card front has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Want2Scrap Baby Bling in Turquoise has been added to each corner.
